a few months ago my running buddies and i decided we'd sign up for a 10K to keep us motivated.
it was hard to keep running some mornings but most of the time we made the effort.
this weekend....we did it!
i am sure you know how hard it is to have time with girlfriends.
so instead of just never seeing them....we meet up to run.
and to distract us from the running we talk about what is going on in our lives.
we each ran the whole 6.2 miles....no walking.
these are positive, encouraging, Godly women that i love.
we support each other.
we lift each other up.
we are happy for each other when good things come.
we pray for each other.
we want to see the best for each other!
they are so special to me.
i am so proud of all us for sticking with it and working hard.
when we were done...we weren't even exhausted.
we all agreed we could've kept going.
this time we could only do starbucks because we had to get back home for our kids' swim meet.
but next time...
we are going to the spa.
and there IS a next time.
in the fall....it's ON!
and there is talk about a half marathon but that scares the heck outta me right now.
some of you have asked me about specifics on my personal running gear....
i used to have to wear two sports bras to run...until i found this.
it's my fave.
it's available on amazon even....i got mine at Dicks Sporting Goods.
it's not cheap...but it's about the same as having to wear two before....and it's totally worth it.
i love the C9 running stuff at target.
love these capris....
and i actually just got this running skirt!!! first shorts and now a skirt?! who am i ??
i love my bright happy shoes. i have had NO problems with the Nike+ Free Runners.
of course you don't NEED any of these things to be a runner....except maybe the bra.
but happy shoes or a cute skirt makes it a teensy more enjoyable.
so....my main advice for running....what has been the best for me?
running with other women keeps me accountable and movitivated and keeps running fun.
find some friends and start walking or jogging.
all this talking about running is making me want to get out there and GO!
i guess i will.
