For the Love of Running
I ran 54 mins with my boyfriend

It was slow, but we had a great time.

Starting over

I think I’m finally ready to restart training and restart enjoying running. It took me a while. I needed space, but my boyfriend has been encouraging me and I’d like to honor that. Mostly though I’d just like to find that person again that was so passionate about the sport. It’s rough. It’s rough having a slow 30 min run be hard, but I’m hoping eventually it won’t be. If any of you are starting over, or want to let me know. I’d love to hear from you.

Goals: base run: 4 miles run: 8 miles goal weight 105-110

Dating a runner boy

Runner boys that block the wind for you on a run. I didn’t realize how sexy that could be.

It’s pretty obvious that I have forgotten how to run… I spit on my own leg today.

THAT WINTER GRIND BLOWS

Back to that training! Ran 5 days last week and two this week. Can’t wait to get back in shape and feel strong again. Hopefully this semester I’ll have more time to workout. Also, can’t wait to go run with my boo-thang. All runners need to try dating another runner at least once. It’s amazing ;). Hopefully I didn’t just jinx myself.

Happy Running All :)

Mmmmm jager.

There are no tricks. Run because you have to. Run because you love it. Run because you want to be fast. Run because you want to be skinny. Run to find some quiet time. Run to sweat. Run to eat. Run to hear your heart pound in your ears. Run because you’re a runner. Run because you gotta keep the streak. Run because you don’t know why the hell you’re running. Run because you fought with your partner. Run because your job is cruddy. Run because you got no money. Run for the sunrise. Run for a race. Run because it’s impossible. Run because it’s easy. Run instead of doing laundry. Run instead of watching TV. Run because no one else understands. Run because the cool kids are doing it. Run because you’re tired of talking. Run for numbers. Run for feel. Run to prove something. Run because it freaking hurts. Or don’t run. If you got something better to do.
