That is the motto of the Nike Women's Marathon this year. The registration for the race asked us to fill in the blank with one word. "I run to be _____"
I wrote Amazed. Every time I run I am happy that I can run, that I am able to finish a 1/2 marathon (or any distance). I am amazed I can do this.
Ran 4 miles today- 3 outside and 1 on the elliptical and felt AMAZING! Even my shin thing isnt hurting. I had to ice it last night. While running I start thinking of other words to complete "I run to be..."
I run to be healthy.
I run to be happy.
I run to be pushed. [to my limits]
I run to be inspiring.
and with that, I fell short of my 20 miles for the week by a couple. Maybe I will make them up tonight. Tomorrow I plan to do 12K although I won't be running B2B. I will do it by my house to celebrate the B2b which is a crazy spectacle.
