So, Friday I did the happy dance:
What? I was excited. To dance. Or is that jumping? Don’t you jump when you dance?
I was dancing (jumping?) in my front yard because of this:
Yeahhhhh, Buddy. Finally! I was starting to panic (obviously) that all this hard work was going to waste.
Like I said on Thursday, I wore my watch but didn’t look at it the entire time I was running. It felt great to JUST RUN. The weather was awesome, my playlist was rockin, and everything just came together. I got lucky, though, because J joined me for the last 3 miles and really pushed me to finish strong. He was awesome.
I needed this. Badly. I needed one good long run to boost my confidence and calm my nerves. Yeahhhhh, Buddy!
And, since we’re talking about running (but, really, when aren’t we?), I wanted to share my application for NUUN’s Hood to Coast all female blogger team. When I first heard about this opportunity my stomach literally jumped. Seriously cool. One, because I honestly love NUUN, and use it either during or after almost every run (grape is my fav!). Two, because Hood to Coast is a DREAM race. Three, because I’ve never run a relay race. And four, because it would just be plain old awesome to join other bloggers for such an amazing experience! It’s a long shot, but I’ve already declared 2012 “my year”. Maybe the people at NUUN think so too!
So, I made a video. It’s short and sweet. And kind of clever I think.
Happy Monday, Friends!
