This morning I ran 5 miles (in 41 minutes!) and realized why I love races so much. Even early in the morning there is so much love and support from strangers, cheering everyone on as they run by. I had this great idea to start an organization that would train people who are unhappy with their lives for long-distance running. Seriously, it makes sense. A whole city is cheering you on as you race through the streets. What is more encouraging than that? Well, I thought it was a good idea.
Regardless of whether the idea pans out, it was a fantastic experience, I got my workout on, and Jeff met me at the end with flowers! It was wonderful to see him support me in the little things.
