Lace ’em up!

After all the running activity last weekend I took it somewhat easy this week (at least on the legs!!)  I did however have quite an interesting run on Thursday.  What I thought would be a slow and steady 4 mile jaunt through the neighborhood ended up being a bit of a sightseeing adventure.  About a mile and a half in I saw the little guys on the left.  They were scared of me (yea I know, I’m evil) so I couldn’t get a great picture but they were so little and absolutely adorbs I was having my very own photo shoot.  Then at about mile 3.5 I ran into the guy on the right.  Keep in mind I was nowhere near water and he was just hanging out by the sidewalk.  Total randomness.  Too bad ducks can’t talk, I really wanted to ask him if he was ok 😉

  1. Running is special to me because it’s my “me” time. I don’t have to worry about anyone else but myself.

  2. I love running (and just blogged about why I love it so much yesterday, haha)!!! Running is special to me because it pushes me to my limits and teaches me things about myself that I never knew (or would know without running). I especially love the endorphin release and emotional clarity it gives me, too!

  3. You had an extremely busy week. I’m glad that you enjoyed your runs. By the way, ducks can talk. You just don’t understand their language. Quack, quack. 😉

  4. Ahhh, the amazingness of massages! For me, running is a release. It’s a way to either push myself and see what I’m made of or just have time to myself and think… or not, haha! I haven’t heard of those Boston medallions before… they are awesome!
