Like an Animal

Good morning loves!! How are you?

I am excited/nervous/confident all at the same time. Why? Because my road test is at 11 a.m. So at that time please say a prayer and cross your fingers for me:)

Since I am SWAMPED with work and dying to make some squeezy (my word for juice), I leave you with this:

Run easy is an oxymoron. What is it about running that scares people so much? Why do people feel they have to put friendly modifiers next to running so everyone can feel good about it? Well, here’s the ugly truth. Everyone shouldn’t feel good about running. It’s hard. It hurts. Running requires sacrifice and heart and guts. Any attempt to water it down with feel-good adjectives is a slap in the face to those of us who still hold running sacred. In fact, if you’re running easy, odds are you’re not running at all. You’re jogging. So do us all a favor, don’t run easy. Run hard. Run like an animal.”

I’m going to run like an animal today. Are you?

Happy Running Tuesday everyone!! ❤
