And I'm not even sure how my mind went to this thought, maybe it was because my devotional was dealing with pride, but I started thinking about how lately I've been enjoying just running. I'm getting back into racing (I have several virtual races on my calendar. I just completed my first 10K with Running On The Wall). And I have officially registered for an upcoming 5K in October, and a 5 miler in November. This will be my first 5K in over a year.
It's not easy to go run a distance at a much slower pace than you've run it in the past. Or it isn't for me anyway.
But lately, I've just been enjoying running and well as I was thinking about the upcoming slower 5K my thought was that "I just want to #runhappy.
I am happy just to be running.
I think being on the couch for almost 2 weeks (Out Of My Control) with this brutal virus which still isn't 100% gone has made me thankful just to be able to run - regardless of pace or distance.
Too often I allow myself to get caught up in so and so is running this or that.. comparison.. I tell you.. it is true that comparison is the thief of joy. (#TuesdayTidbit - Don't Compare)
And for the first time in a very long time, with 'races' on my calendar, I really just want to #runhappy.
