It’s the last Friday of the month. And you know what that means, right? It means the stars align and Runfessions coincides with the Friday Five 2.0. It’s like a match made in blogging heaven. Let’s get on with it, shall we? I have a few things to runfess this February…
Join Fairytales and Fitness and me for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup! This has been an amazing ride and we’re glad you guys link up every week. Scroll down to add yours!
1. I have the need for speed.
I runfess I freaking LOVE running fast. There, I said it. Marathons are cool and all because there are major bragging rights involved with finishing one, but damn if I don’t feel like a badass when I can rip off super speedy paces and feel great afterward. There’s a reason 5Ks are my favorite race distance.
2. Running with a dog is everything I dreamed of and more.
I love running with my dog. I didn’t think I did. But then I went out for a run this week without her. I was so lonely! It was kinda sad. We reunited for my cool down mile and all was right with the world.
3. I almost didn’t sign up for Grandma’s in June.
I know — I don’t know what I was thinking either! It was close, though. I should have signed up when I first got the idea so a) registration would have been cheaper and b) I would have gotten the race jacket as part of registration. But I didn’t because I made a rookie mistake and “thought” about it. Like I was even thinking. I knew I would be running it when the thought first crossed my mind. It just took a hot minute to get there.
I had to really deliberate about it, though, because it’s not just me going. My whole family will be coming with me and it takes a lot of coordination and dedication to get the gang all together for a race that I selfishly run while my husband corrals the two little people.
Speaking of which…
4. My husband is amazing.
I runfess, without my husband’s support, there’s no way I would run as many races as I do, travel for races, meet new people, or train as many clients as I do. He’s a good guy. Some may say he’s a mensch. As hard of a time as I give him for trivial things like not clearing the table or not vacuuming the right way (yes, there is a right way to vacuum), he’s a keeper.
5. Global warming is real.
I’m a tree hugger and I’m really torn up about how we’ve treated our home. But the runner in me is really digging this springlike weather we’ve had over the last few days. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t enjoying it. Shorts and a singlet in February? It doesn’t seem quite right… but it was amazing…
That’s a wrap for my February runfessions. I’m certain I have more but thankfully the Friday Five 2.0 limits me to only five things, otherwise I’d probably gripe about who knows what. This at least keeps me honest — and positive. 🙂 Win win!
Have a fantastic weekend — and those of you running Disney, have a blast!
