Make no mistake-It takes a Village!
Make no mistake, if there is one thing that I have learned: it takes a village to support a runner!
Where would I be without:
Parents: “You go girl!”
Kids: “That is awesome Mom!” “That is a cool medal!” “How far is a 5K/” “When will you be home?” “If I come, are you buying breakfast?”
BRF: “How far are we running this weekend?” ” Is my shirt on inside out?” “We really need to leave at 4:30am?” “Let’s speak about that!” “Yes!”
Coach M: “Speedy MB!” “You make me proud!” “Practice good form!” “Did it feel hard?” “Oh good lord. Glad you found a bar” “Well scabs are badass too!”
Hubby: “I can help you with that bra 🙂 ” “Where are you going again?” “Are you running on Saturday?” “Hi, stinky Skippy!” “Where is the free beer?” “Was I supposed to take a picture?” “Just run faster Skippy!!!”
I also have to thank my girlfriends, awesome friends on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram that shout out and encourage all year-long! Let’s not forget the nice people at the shoe store who keep my feet happy and customer support at Fitbit. Can’t forget companies like: Spandits, MySoxyFeet and SJ Sports jewelry who help keep me cool and fashionable on the run!
So the next time you roll out of bed, lace up, sports bra on, shorts on, shoes and socks on, hair up, Fitbit on, headphones charged, Spotify on, and workout programmed just pause. Enjoy that cup of coffee and smile. Everyone else is still in bed. You my friends are a runner. Can you imagine anything else?
