Happy Global Running Day 2019!
For those of you who know me, you know that running has become one of my favorite hobbies over the last few years...at least I've fooled myself into thinking so, because it certainly can be painful! I began running to try and compensate for a very unforgiving metabolism, combined with a passionate palate! And, while the physical/health benefits of running are very important, I've personally found running to be my 'me' time where my I hold my calls and let my brain wander...very therapeutic! So, today, I invite you all to celebrate running on Global Running Day.
If you are a regular runner, knock of an extra mile to celebrate...and if you're an aspiring runner, today's a good day to start. The hardest part of running is tying your shoes!
