In November I announced that I needed a break from my relationship with marathons. Even sunshine burns if you get too much, right?
I wrote my break up letter (or blog post) to running and told him I needed some time. Then, I focused on enjoying my life in Las Vegas and in Oxnard doing distances that required less of a commitment. I had a great time!
I couldn’t deny the special place in my heart for the ‘distance of death’ as I like to call it and I wanted to give it another shot.
I ran another full mary two weeks ago. <- That was really supposed to be my good-bye party to fulls – swear. Scouts honor.
However, I had a good time and got a free bib to the LA Marathon and the next thing you know I’m
having a baby named Full Jr. wearing a 26.2 necklace and writing very public love letters professing my love for fulls on every social media channel that will listen.
I actually had been shopping around online looking for a marathon charm when reader Jasmine contacted me and offered to send me one! She runs an etsy shop and makes inspirational charms. Perfect timing!
Despite my long term relationship with running, I am very big doing your own thing! If you want some jewelry / candy / flowers – buy it for yourself! Why wait for someone to make ya happy?
So, if you want to buy yourself a piece of Jasmine’s jewelry use the code RUNEATREPEAT and get 20% off! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Then, I made myself a three course breakfast. I am not messing around here.
Question: If you could write a love letter to someone or some thing today – who / what would it be?
