TODAY IS ST. VALENTINES DAY XOXO!
Some of you will run a 5K (or ran one the day before). For obvious reasons on this holiday, the mind runs turns to LOVE. Do you have a course you LOVE TO RUN for training? If you don’t, think about finding one for yourself, even if you must drive a fair distance to get to it. Because of the effort that goes into the long endurance runs of the weekend, ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE PREPPING FOR A HALF MARATHON OR MARATHON, map one for this day. It can be deserving of love because: 1) it’s easy, 2) it’s hard, 3) it has a great view 4) it has a restroom 5) it has a potable water source, 6) you see lots of other runners, 7) you encounter few other runners, or combinations of these characteristics. If you’re lucky you have more than one course you love. An advantage of competing with an EarnedRuns bib, is that you can design a race on this same course!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
