I love running. Even when I hate it, I kind of love it.
I think it’s best summed up in song.
She got both feet on the ground
And she’s burning it down
This girl is on fire*
If you’re lost and alone
Or you’re sinking like a stone
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
Giving up’s not an option, gotta get it in
Stronger than ever, can’t mow me down
A hundred mile feelin’, gonna miss your ground
Straight game face, it’s game day
See me running through the crowd full of melee***
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes you fighter
Footsteps even lighter****
Want to join me? My friend and amazing health coach has just launched the Happy 5K, with money raised going toward the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
You have until April 12th to get to 3.1 miles, however you want to. Walk. Run. Crawl. Skip. Just get it in. Awesome prizes, awesome people. I’m in — are you?
