An Ode To Running

Running......oh how I love you.

Let us count the ways, shall we?

Running Valentine

I love the places you've brought me, running races in all kinds of fun locations!

Running Valentine

I love the sights and scenery you've allowed me to see - so many sunrises and even more sunsets - running around swamps, lakes, back country roads, national parks, bridges (even the scary ones), gorgeous neighborhoods, cathedrals, giant castles, Main Streets, and more.

Running Valentine

I love the friends you've granted me along this journey. Running friends truly are the best!

I love how freeing you are. Sometimes, all I need is to lace up my shoes and go for a run and my day is instantly better.

I love the feeling of accomplishment you bring - setting a goal and reaching it is one of the best feelings in the world!

I love the overall camaraderie running can bring - at a race, surrounded by hundreds and thousands of strangers, making new friends along the way.

 I love the fact that running isn't easy - it's kind of hard, actually - and nothing worth having in life is easy.

Running Valentine

I love that I can involve my family and friends in running, too. Completing races as a family brings me so much joy!

Running Valentine

I love the overall health factor you bring - I feel better physically when I'm in a training cycle and my labs/vitals show it, too.

I love that I can take the occasional break and come right back to you - sometimes even being able to pick up right where we left off.

Running Valentine

Running, I simply love you.
