Ahhh you guys. I just fell in love with running even more after watching the ESPN Run TV show on Rock N Roll DC Marathon!
Over the weekend I received some messages about people in Latin America who saw the ESPN Run show that I was a part of air on TV. Needless to say I’ve been obsessively checking espnrun.com for the past three days, but I was so excited today about the Erica Sara Designs x I Run This Body jewelry collaboration announcement that I forgot to check.
One of the film producers pinged me earlier to tell me the show is now up on their site. 34 feels good.
I have a permanent grin on my face and feel all warm and fuzzy inside after watching it. Running is the best. Quite literally the best.
Before the scene where I cross the finish line and hug my kids there is a gentleman talking about how all the things you miss when you train for a marathon all become worth it after you cross the finish line.
His words feel perfect for how I feel today. I wrote a friend earlier about a big-for-me life decision I want to make. One that I think is going to add more life to my life. I asked for her support because everything in life is easier when your best friend is by your side.
I don’t see missing things as a result of running as really missing anything at all.
Running doesn’t take away from my life or cause me to miss out on anything – it adds to my life and helps me NOT miss out on all that life has to offer. The so called things I miss out on, like late nights, are worth giving up because I’m getting much more in return.
