|Celebrating at Green Lake!|
At this point, I see no reason to stop and it's become such a part of my life and routine. It would be weird NOT to run every day. The daily meditation of just being alone without distraction has become almost a necessity. Even when I have true downtime, I am usually distracting myself with a book at the very least. The 'type-A' in me also wants to complete an actual calendar year run streak. Memorial Day as an anniversary is lovely, but I'm itching to run every day in 2015.
My husband was the first to ask if I was going to continue, or if I could stop worrying about it now. Certainly he was the most supportive of this whole venture. But, there were days when I was pretty hard on myself to get that mile done. Especially on those days where had a 102 degree fever, he would worry for me. However, I almost feel like those runs helped me sweat it out! If I ever encounter a full blown injury, the streak ends, no question. But, as I said before, daily running has been helpful in keeping me well attuned to my body so that I can head off the littlest niggles and pains.
Speaking of my husband, he's got a weekend trip planned to visit with his buddies in a few weeks and I'm definitely going to encounter difficulties trying to run while the kids are out of school and he's not home. But, I'm sure I'll figure it out...
