I grew up running. It’s what I know better than anything else. Running is always there. That’s why I love running so much.
Running is a lot of things to me.
My mom was a runner, and I wanted to be just like my mom.
Running led me to my husband, BJ. We met at a local fun run – and he even proposed on a run!
Running has taken me through New Zealand (Queenstown, Blenheim, Fox Glacier, Auckland, Waiheke Island), Panama, Paris, Frankfurt, Brazil, Brussels, Argentina…New York City, Boston, San Francisco, LA, Chicago, Sun Valley, Boise, Washington DC…over the Golden Gate Bridge, through vineyards, up and over Heartbreak Hill, around the National Mall, starting at Mt. Hood and finishing on the Coast of Seaside…
Running paid for (most of) college.
Running introduced me to some of my best friends.
Running carried me through my first pregnancy – and I even ran a race at 7 months!
Running has humbled me. Many times.
Running has me pushing a running stroller with LJ – and embracing my new role as mother runner.
Running started as a 50m sprint and has (slowly) increased over the years: 100m, 200m, 400m (+ hurdles), 5k, 10k, 10 mile, Half Marathon, Marathon.
Running pays my bills. Literally. I get paid to run.
Running lets me indulge in margaritas. wine. ice cream. chocolate. I could go on…
Running gave me the opportunity to meet some running greats: Bill Rodgers,Desi Davilla, Christy Wellington, Scott Jurek, Nick Symmonds, Josh Cox.
Running keeps me healthy and happy.
I love running. Happy National Running Day.
