Not gonna lie. I am so proud of myself! I ran my longest run ever this morning with Scott. We managed to run all the way from our house to his best friend’s house – which is a town away from us, they just moved in so it was kind of a neat little goal of ours – and back. Today is yet another gorgeous fall day in New England which, by all accounts, is PERFECT running weather. It’s sunny, a little breezy and pretty warm, especially considering Thanksgiving is a week away. Even Scott commented that I ran my best ever, no wimpering, no complaining, no stopping, I ran it like a champ, he claims at least. 😉 Either way, I am excited that I’ve come so far and can actually say that I love running. Now the treadmill? That’s another story altogether, but I digress.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, part of the reason for today’s lengthy run was to prepare for the Wild Turkey Run we’re signed up for on Thanksgiving which is a 5 miler at 8am on turkey day. Scott and I ran it last year and this year, Jo is going to join us which I’m really excited about. I know she’ll be great (even though she’s shaking her head at me as she reads this I’m sure). It sort of caps off a long year of ups and downs for her, and for us partially, so I’m looking forward to rocking this race like no other.
As our motto goes, “Start strong, Just Finish” – somehow I think we’ll be finishing this one strong too, just sayin’. 😉
