Today I decided to go do my run at CrossFit Krypton, which is one of my favorite places to be, with some of my good friends and able to catch up with people I haven't seen for a little while. It was perfect because I was having Christian Becker on my podcast (The Big Red Express), and it was a good chance to get my run in before our chat. It felt like a really quick run, which made it a little bit better, I felt great and since I hadn't run that route since Memorial Day, felt good to switch things up and have a little change of scenery. I gotta do that more often.
I wanted to say something about running, I recently read an article on Runner's World, about a lady who has been running for over 250 days in a row. I look at that number and I'm like HOLY COW, how do you run for that many days in a row? But then I look at my streak so far, and I'm thinking that exact thing. How have I been able to run at least a mile everyday for the past 59 days. Along with this article that was posted on Facebook, people started leaving comments about how bad running is for you, and is for your body and that you shouldn't run day after day after day. And in some cases I agree with that, but to comment about that on a post that is praising someone who has changed her life and that has made her life better by running each day I think is a pretty low move. Why can't we just congratulate people for doing something that is hard to do, for sticking with something that isn't easy. I don't want to ramble too much, but I wanted to personally send a congratulations to April Rueb for continuing to run for 250+ days. I hope the streak is still going and I hope it continues for a long time! If you want to check out the article you can CLICK HERE.
Anyway, today's run was a good one and I'm glad I decided to head to CrossFit Krypton and knock it out!
What did I listen to? Jock Jams radio on Pandora
Passage of the Day: Luke 14:8-10, "'When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, don't recline at the best place, because a more distinguished person than you may have been invited by your host. The one who invited both of you may come and say to you, Give you pace to this man, and then in humiliation, you will proceed to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and recline in the lowest place, so that when the one who incited you comes, he will say to you, Friend move up higher. You will then be honored in the presence of all the other guests. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.'"
Thank you for checking in to today's blog and as always, I couldn't do this without the outpour of love and support along the way. We'll do it again tomorrow and I don't know about you, but I am so ready for some cooler weather!
