Well, if I was waiting for motivation to jump start my spring time running, this week has really done it for me.
That’s right. A stubborn roll of belly pudge (my ‘winter chub’) didn’t motivate me. Longer days and more sunlight didn’t do it, either. An entire week to myself last week as Zoey spent Spring Break with my mom definitely helped…but the happenings in Boston this week have truly inspired me to tie on my running shoes, get outside, and RUN.
We all wonder what could possibly cause someone to create such devastation and destruction at the site of America’s biggest, most prestigious race. We are all feeling sad and bewildered. But what I love about my running community is that we are also feeling PISSED. We are not about to be undone by some whackadoo with a religious or political point to prove. People train their entire careers to qualify and make it to Boston. And we will be damned if someone is going to rain on our parade.
So get out there, runners. Dig out your short sleeved running shirts and your running skirts. (Okay. It may be a little early for the skirts…but definitely find your capris.) Find your running buddy or plug in your iPod and go.
It’s time to run!
