My first run of the year was on New Year’s Day. I went to get my Nike Apple watch ready for the run and it challenged me to a 5k. I said out loud “yeah right, I am way out of shape for that to happen.” Well, I did it and went even a little farther as I was running aimlessly around the area I live. It’s funny when you run often you know how far every bit of road is, but when you don’t and this is a new area to your running, it’s like a mystery where you will go.
I’ve created the goal of running 500 miles in 2017, as that isn’t too crazy, but also won’t be easy if I allow my work schedule to take over.
I found a good deal on running shoes and since I have gone from Asics –> Brooks –> Nike –> Brooks –>Nike, I’m now going to test out Saucony and Mizuno. My racing flats that I love are Mizuno, so I thought why not?! When you can get two pairs of running shoes for the price of one, may as well.
As it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I thought our motivation will have a theme…..
Honestly, a Kesha song came on the other day and ever since then, I’ve been reliving her “Animal” album as it’s definitely the right rhythm for running.
