Marvelous is…

Reflections on Running | HappyFitMama.com

Hey guys!

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was nothing overly the top outrageous but a weekend is always good no matter what, in my opinion. To celebrate and to keep the good vibes rolling into the week, I’m thinking of all the marvelous that there was (big thanks to Katie for hosting!).

Marvelous is…a near perfectly executed progression long run. On Saturday, I hit my first double digit run in over 4 months. I purposely started off slower in hopes of at least finishing the last 5k faster for this months 5 by the 5th Virtual Race. What happened with each passing mile was that my strength and confidence grew. I felt strong. It was almost like everything finally clicked. It felt like I was standing taller, my form was better and I was floating. I completed my 5k in 23:58, 19 seconds faster than last month. This run made me feel like my old runner self. The one that made me feel like I’m BACK. I’m going to be OK. I’m done talking about tendon injuries. Slap me if I ever bring it up again, k?

Marvelous is…Getting honked at while on the above run but realizing it was not a creeper beeper perv but another runner giving me support. Side note to the driver of the car: sorry for initially flipping you off. I realized my mistake when I saw the back of your car was plastered with every single running bumper sticker ever made. Whoops! :)

Marvelous is…sunshine and temps in the 50s. I know I keep mentioning the improving weather but it seriously is the best to finally have sunshine and SPRING!
