June 5th is National Running Day, but you likely know that since most people who read this blog are typically runners, people who like to exercise or they’re good family and/or friends who I force to read anything I post!
Anyways, I did a lot of things today, but running was not one of them. I ran the last two days and my ankle was feeling a little sore, so I thought it would be best to stay off it tonight.
I’m listening my body because quite frankly my running injuries are getting very expensive! Even with insurance, the cost of the walking boot I used for two days was more than my monthly car payment. Talk about painful.
Back to running.
This evening at work, someone stopped in my office who I had never met before. He saw my numerous 13.1, 20K, 10K and 5K stickers on my wall and we struck up a 15 minute conversation about running, races, trails, etc.
What a perfect day to really feel a part of the wonderful running community. It’s crazy how much I love running, how I try to work running stories into every conversation and how I can talk to anyone (seriously, anyone) when it’s about running.
I have just three short days left until I hopefully can meet some new runner friends around my new home. I can’t wait!
What do you love most about running? Did you run today?
