FFF: 5 Things to Love About Running

1.The Friends I’ve Made

My local running friends are the best….

I don’t know where I’d be without them. Whether it is sharing some of my miserable long runs in the cold or seeing their smiling faces before a race or just chatting about running at a post-run brunch.

Running Life is better with friends to support you.

2.The Places I’ve Visited

I don’t travel as much as other runners but I have gotten to visit California, Florida, Vermont, Philly, NJ, Las Vegas, Montreal, NH, Maine and Paris!!

I may not have gone to these locations if I had not registered for a race.

3.The Achievements I’ve Accomplished

I would race every weekend if I could afford it.

I love all distances though my favorites are the 5k and the half marathon. The excitement at the start line with the other runners and the feeling of accomplishment when you cross that finish line can’t be beat.

Completing over 60 Half Marathons and One Marathon!! Who would have thought I could?

Starting at age 55!

4. The Virtual Connections

If I didn’t run, I probably wouldn’t blog and I would have missed out on meeting some fabulous ladies.

My blog started as motivation to keep on running and now it is so much more… a way to stay connected to the running community.

The same can be said about Facebook and Instagram and Brand Ambassador Groups (ie Skirt Sports, Zensah).

5. Feeling Healthy.

That is both physically (I rarely get sick)

and mentally.

It’s true: “Running is my Therapy.”

If I am feeling tired, rundown, stressed, depressed, I just go for a run…

I always feel better when I’m done.

Happy Running! So what do you love about running? Please share.
