Anniversary Run


Today is my 11th Wedding Anniversary. Unfortunately, my husband is at work today, and I have a lot of work to get through before we go out for a lovely Anniversary dinner tonight, but that didn't stop me from going out for a nice early morning run.

I laced up my trainers with a smile and decided to run a regular 4.5 mile route, but I decided to slow my pace a little so that I could run for longer before walking. This worked brilliantly, as I was able to run for the first 20 minutes before I needed to walk a little ... normally I run the first mile really quickly and then have to walk on and off for the next 2-3 miles, but this morning i not only ran the first 2 miles, but i only had to walk on and off for 1.5 miles before I finished running the last mile.

It was grey and overcast his morning and a little breezy, but it definitely didn't dampen my mood. I ran the whole route with a smile on my face and started thinking about my wedding day, and the look on Matt's face when he first saw me in my wedding dress. I then started recalling many happy memories from my Honeymoon, holidays, family gatherings and our furbaby family.

I saw many people on my run, this is normal. They don't normally talk or even acknowledge me, but this morning at least 4 people said hello, 3 people gave me encouragement to keep running, and 2 drivers actually allowed me to keep running before they continued out of their driveways. The friendliness of people never ceases to amaze me.

I managed to run 4.59 miles in 00:45:51 this morning.

I'll definitely enjoy our Anniversary dinner tonight, and here's to many more ?
