What's to LOVE About Running??
Happy Valentine's Day!!
Well, in honor of the lovey dovey holiday of Valentine's Day. The things I love about running:
1. The crazy people I have met because of it. I heart the internet and I heart my frunner friends!!
|OZ half marathon with L and B|
|Post DC half marathon with friends I met in Greece|
|SoCal Ragnar Team 2012!|
|Team Badass at Tinker Bell half|
2. The clothes! (Look what I got today!)
|I have tried the LuluAid. And it's fabulous.|
|Neon NEON orange shirt and jacket? Thanks J! xoxo|
|Tinker Bell half 2012|
5. THE BLING:
|Lost Dutchman Marathon 2011|
6. The challenge. I find a lot of things in life either boring, easy, or easy enough to fake. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FAKING IN RUNNING. Think you can half-ass train a 50 miler? No. You can't. I like that there is constantly something to strive for. When will I hit my ceiling? I have no clue. I'm crazy like that.
**As an aside**
In a little over two weeks I will have my first DNS. I had been putting off purchasing airfare for RnR NoLA because it was expensive. Well, heads up. It never got any cheaper over the last year. Everyone else booked their airfare weeks ago, and now if I were to try and book the same flights I'm seriously looking at close to $400. That's crazy. So, yes, I have my financial limits. I'm totally bummed because now I'll be a state short of my goal, but man. I cannot justify that much money for a 24 hour turnaround.
