The topic for today’s “Tuesdays on the Run” is if running were a genie and could grant me 3 running wishes, what would they be?
1. Dear running genie, I would really like a running buddy to go to races with. Not exactly someone I need to run with during each and every run. I like running by myself for the most part. I would just like to have someone who could go with me instead of dragging my sweet hubby (who is a non-runner) to races. I’ve had running friends before, but have been dropped and left out over the last couple of years. It’s almost like “running high school” down here sometimes. Women can be very competitive, spiteful, and down right mean. And what for? When I went to Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend a year ago, I went with 2 women I met on IG and most of the other ladies were from Alabama. They were so warm and welcoming so I KNOW not everyone is like some of the women here where I am from.
2. Dear running genie, I would really like to run another marathon. It’s been 2 years and I can’t seem to find the time. Can you give me the motivation I need to tackle 26.2 again? Also I need you to clear my schedule to get in those long training runs and please keep my children from getting sick during training if at all possible? Please and thank you!
3. Dear running genie, I would like to run one destination race. A half marathon will work due to my timing issues as mentioned in wish number 2. I’ve only flown on a plane once in my life and need to get past that fear so I can see other parts of the world and meet new people. I love seeing new places on foot especially during a race. I’m thinking Hawaii?? I do so love the beach!
