A Few Things I Love About Running

I'm feeling a need to write so I thought I would share a few things I love about running.

I love that my nine year old son talks to his friends about me being an Ultra Runner like its "really cool".

I love that my wife says she is not a runner; although she will run home from work (that's from Downtown Charleston, over the Cooper River Bridge and to Mount Pleasant), has run a ton of 5k's, has run several half marathons and has run a marathon.

I love being in better shape now than I was in my 20's and 30's.

I love that I have friends who will show up at 4:30am for a run even if its cold and raining (although, they will complain about it).

I love that I am 42 years old and my mother stills says she is proud of me for inspiring others.

I love that I can run at lunch.

I love that people let me coach them to run.

I love that my son likes to come to my running groups (one day on our way home he said, "I really like those people. I really like runners.").

I love seeing people I coach reach their goals (I like seeing people I don't coach reach their goals too, don't be so cynical) .

I love that I have co workers who run now.

I love that I can walk into a running store (TrySports) and they know my name and shoe size (okay that part's a little creepy, but you get what I'm saying).

I love that my son feels so comfortable at a race that he will get a massage just like any other runner.

I love that running is an adventure every time I go out the door.

And I love that there are like at least two people who read this blog (pretty sure its my mom and someone else, could be just my mom though)...

  1. Make that 3!! I love your blog and thoughts on running. Let me add to your list... I love how this area has so many choices for running ... from 5k to 50 miles, you name it, we've got it.

  2. Haha I love that comment about just your mom and someone else! I feel like that too sometimes, except my mom doesn't read so it'd be my husband and someone else!

    I love how Peyton could legit circle that 50 miles is the distance someone would most likely race on a test... that meme you shared with that, good stuff ;).

  3. Love this post!

    I love that I can run farther now than when I was in my 20's



  4. Thanks Arthur! Great blog too!
