Today, June 3, is one of the best days of the year. Why, you ask?
It’s National Running Day!!!
Here are some of my reasons for running:
I have to admit, I wasn’t feeling terribly motivated to run this morning. I was tired, it’s kind of a nasty day here, and I just wanted to be lazy.
But, I saw a lot of people posting on Facebook about the runs they had done today, and I knew I had no excuse. So, I got changed and loaded the boys up in the stroller with the rain shield.
So by the time we get home, I’m looking and feeling like a drowned rat. But, thanks to my awesome BoB Weather Shield, my boys are dry as toast! 🙂 Except Little Man’s hands, which kept sticking out the side so he could feel the rain.
I like National Running Day because it’s an excuse to ponder why running is so important to me. I can think of so many reasons! The endorphin high after completing a great workout, crushing lofty goals and perceived limits, establishing an active lifestyle with/for my family, the sculpted legs, the community of runners everywhere… the list goes on and on! I am so proud to call myself a runner, and to be a part of the most welcoming athletic communities in the world!
Happy running, y’all!
