Who would have thought I’d ever celebrate National Running Day? I used to HATE running. Honestly, I despised it and thought people who enjoyed it were absolutely crazy. Then two years ago I ran my first 5k. It initially started as an attempt to avoid aging, but then, it grew into something more.
Now, I am one of those crazy people, but still consider myself a beginner. I am not fast. I can’t go very far, and I often look like I am in pain (which I usually am). But there is something about it that makes me feel strong and accomplished. Awe, now I wish I could hug running!
I celebrated by running just over 3.5 miles today. Did you celebrate National Running Day? If so, how far did you go?
