I was trying to think of things to talk about to my Friday Thing post and all I could think about was last day of work! And oh it’s snowing again.
Not overly exciting. But then I saw that Lizzy had tagged me for a Running Favorites survey. So, that’s what we’re doing today!
Flag is where I started running seriously. It’s where I’ve trained for all four marathons. It’s where I started trail running. It’s been the home of my running journey from beginning to where I am now. From struggling to run 3, 10 min miles, to running a BQ. It’s challenged me with its terrain and weather. I love it. It’s home.
Time of Day
I’m a morning runner. As much as getting up early pains me, I love the feeling of accomplishing my run before the rest of the world wakes up. Even if it’s freezing and snowing.
High 60s, sunny and no wind. That’s my sweet spot.
I think it’s safe to say we all know it’s Picky Bars.
The thing about running is the rewards are usually intrinsic. Most of us aren’t winning big money pots. We’re enjoying the stress release, endorphin high, and pride of a PR. For me I think it’s the constant show that I can improve, and the knowledge that I am capable of SO MUCH. 3 years ago after running my first marathon, I never thought a BQ would be possible, but I did it. I’ve allowed myself to dream big, work hard and achieve those goals with my running. And I’ve begun to let that same idea trickle into my personal life and career goals.
Also, ice cream and wine.
Have stellar weekend everyone! I’m going to greatly enjoy my first of many Saturday’s off again 🙂
