For a Runner,Happiness Is
For a Runner,Happiness Is:
1.A new pair of running shoes.After all these years it still makes you feel good to get them.
2. Being with a core group of running friends you train and often race with.These are people who understand you and are a part of this running life you live.
3.That unexpected pr (personal record) or performance that seems to come out of nowhere.
4.The first beer you have with your running friends after that great run.They know how you feel and are interested in what you have to say.
5.That one route you train on where you always feel good running it. You find yourself looking forward to doing it each week.
6.The feeling you get when you realize that all your training for a big race is starting to come together. You feel light and smooth as you go.
7.A good meal a few hours after that easy long run and shower.
8.The cup of coffee you have from the place you make a point of stopping at on chilly mornings after your long run.
9.Finding closeout running gear that you can really use at incredibly low prices. I still treasure the Nike Pre running hoodie that was marked down forty dollars.
10.Travelling with friends to do a race out of town. The camaraderie,the time spent together,the anticipation of the race, as well as the race itself and the time spent after create memories that last for years.
I'm sure many of you can relate to the above.Treasure what you have,take nothing for granted.
