Run!, Slacker

Friday Shiny

Happy Friday!!!!!

So I kind of liked last week’s Guilty post.  Then I was thinking about my “motto” for 2015 and 2016- Find your shiny.  So while this week bordered on crazy and I could complain about any number of numerous items, how about I flip the coin and find the shiny.

  
Sunsets-

I never really saw these before I started running.  Or before I started commuting but that’s beside the point.   I’ve been running in work town lately and have had the opportunity to see some pretty spectacular sunsets.    Like come to a halt and stare sunsets.  I wish the camera on my phone did them justice.  In person, they are just awesome.  I usually stare a little too long and end up finishing my run in the dark but it’s worth it.

Dragons-

So, last post I shared my serious lack of long runs over the years.  I’m still kind of shocked by how well I lied to myself for so many years.    Anyways.  Looking for the shiny- This year I’ve run 3 10 milers, an 11 and a 12.  That’s actually pretty awesome!  Which leads me to dragons.    This image popped up in my feed the other day and the first thing that popped into my mind was long runs.   #runnerbrain  If running is a fairy tale then long runs are my dragons.  Time to get slaying.   Ok, maybe that was cheesy. 😃  

  

You guys!!!-

Seriously.   Thank you for all the positive thoughts on my last post.  And Twitter.   The online running community is huge but small at the same time.  It kind of rocks.  You all rock. 

See what I did there?😛
 

That’s all for now, but maybe I will do this again sometime.

 

What was your shiny this week?

Any fun plans this weekend?

Who’s running?!
