I'm not super fast and haven't qualified for Boston yet (haven't even finished a full marathon yet), so even though those are on my running bucket list, that can't be it for me.
This week it was Monday's run. That night I was worn out from family visiting and kiddo's messed up sleep schedule and just feeling flat lazy. Running was one of the LAST things I wanted to do. Right up there with drilling hot screws into my head.
|Cassie's Monday plans were more what I had in mind.|
|It's because you stretched like this. (Avery's first solo sit!)|
- When I completed a half marathon.
- When I attempted another half marathon 5.5 months pregnant.
- When pregnancy finally made me stop running...and reading about my friends races made me both happy for them and depressed because I couldn't join them.
- When I wrote my training plan for when I was no longer pregnant while I was 7 months pregnant. HERE
- When I showed up for a MiT group run 2.5 weeks after Avery was
runborn. (That typo was too funny, given the topic, to correct). Hardest. Run. Ever. I was also rather hysterical and a hot mess. I think my group thought I was a lunatic. They still run with me though, so I'm not sure what that says. HA!
- When I ran/walked a quarter marathon 3.5 weeks after Avery was born.
- When I cried over the idea that I might have to skip a bunch of runs because of my knee.
- When I started creating a running bucket list.
- When I bought an extra pair of running shoes to "rotate" them in.
- When my hard drive died, and the first software I loaded onto the new one was the Garmin software.
I'm not the fastest runner on the block, but I am a runner. Other than my group run this week, most of my runs have been difficult to start. That one on Monday? I was definitely not feeling a love for running at all, and I still went out for a run. Either I'm crazy, or I'm a runner. I'll go with runner.
Although it doesn't go with the theme - here is one picture from my Dad's climb last weekend...I promise to post more. Maybe I'll get him to write a guest post recapping the climb!

What are some moments that made you realize that you are a runner?
Do you have a running bucket list? Any suggestions for things to add to mine?
