Running is great most of the time.  Yeah those times when you would just rather sit on the couch and watch TV happen every now and then (sometimes more than we want to admit)..but I'm focusing on the times when we all think running is great!  Since it is Valentine's Day I thought I would give a little love to running.

Things I love about Running:

1.  People- I love that I have met some great people because of running. Some people that I would not have met otherwise.  Some of the people I do not even know there names..I just recognize them at some races (old man runner in the red outfit..see him at a lot of local races..I'm secretly stalking him)  Some of the people I have met now have a place in my phone with a number attached so we can get in touch with each other whenever we want.

2.  New shoes - There is just something about new shoes.  It makes me feel like a kid at Christmas.  I just can't wait to take those new kicks for a ride!  I may buy shoes a bit too often just experience the new shoe feeling.  I also think I might shop for new running shoes more than I shop for new shoes for the rest of my life.

3. The feeling of a great run - sometimes we live for the possibility of the perfect run.  You know what I'm talking head out and think it will just be an ordinary everyday sort of run, but the weather is perfect, you feel like you could run forever.  The perfect run, you never know when it might show up, but you always are happy when it happens and hope it happens often.

4.  Races - I love the feeling of race day.  Everyone is happy and looking forward to a great day of running.  It doesn't matter if it is a 5K, 10K or a half marathon...I love race day!  I never know what kind of day I will have come race morning, but I always hope that the day will be a good one on race day.


5.  Bling - I don't think I have to say much about bling.  Love some great running medals.  I need some more bling to fill up my my second medal holder.

 I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!  What are some of the things that you love about running?
