I've got me another link up today (yeah so sorry - no Friday Letters today...I know, I know you're probably heart broken) This time it's with Amanda - and it's about running...now THIS is my kinda post <3
250 words or less....here's why I started running (and continue to today)
My husband is the reason why I started running - plain and simple. Here's my story...
There was a breakup. Thus resulting in running...call it free therapy if you so wish. This bout with running didn't last long - a few months maybe and my longest run was 2 miles (if I'm lucky!) Fast forward a year and a half (or so...) The future hubs comes into my life. I join a gym soon after and start working out regularly (but not running.) 2 years later he suggests a 5k. I think he's crazy...but because I'm a little crazy too I agree to it. I ran 3 miles once while I 'trained' for this race. Thanks to a knee issue I wasn't even sure I was going to do it until 10 the night before the race. BUT we did it....
And I fell in love...the rest is history. So thank you lovebug <3
And that my friends basically sums up why/how I started running. To read more about my love of running, check out the post I did here.
I hope I never have to stop running. And I hope the passion I have for running never leaves me. And I hope everyone gives running a chance....because once you do - you'll never go back! It's empowering. It's addicting. And it's FUN! So what are you waiting for? Go...Go NOW...run...run...run...run your little heart out and enjoy EVERY.SINGLE.MILE.
