Gettin’ excited!

So last Friday’s run wasn’t the best. (Did I mention that when I fell, I fell into a patch of poison ivy?! Isn’t that the icing on the cake of a bad run? Awesome.) We all have those days and I was shook up by it, but when those days strike we have to keep going. We have to find inspiration and seek out the good side of the bad. Otherwise it will drag you down. Yesterday I was delivered a dose of hope about Wild Duluth. I read about the updated course for the race and it got me really excited! We get to run through a tunnel; a really long, dark tunnel…with glow sticks! Deep down I know that I really, really love this race and I have to keep that in mind. It’s a lot of fun to run and to be able to run 31 miles on trail is something really special to me. I have to be ever thankful that my body can and wants to do this. I run because I love to, because it makes me feel like a kid and because I feel alive when I’m out there. And that’s all I gotta say about that! Now, back to applying more anti-itch cream…
