I luv going slow
I luv noticing houses and building that I never knew existed
I luv watching the flowers bloom
I luv literally watching the grass grow
I luv looking at the light and knowing “don’t worry, it’ll change before you get there”
I luv chatting with men in walkers as we mosey up the road at the same pace
I luv the blank stares from the passerby’s as they zoom past me in their cars
I luv the look of pity in the other runners as they cruise pass me as if floating on wings
I luv the tender ‘beep, Beep, BEEP’ as Garmin lovingly reminds me that my heart is WAY too fast to go up this hill at this 'speed'
Stop! Slow down; enjoy the fact that ants are now your competition
I luv holding a 14+ minute pace
I luv base
Happy - Happy day!
And to all you people that have already done the base training (probably for the 50th time) and are now ‘floating by on wings’ – I luv you too!
