I get strength to push through runs from a bunch of different places. It could be music, emotion, passing another runner or a goal I have set for myself. Today I got strength from my right. Tamara and I have treadmills about 8 feet apart and this morning when I was struggling on a normal run I took a few peeks over at her and it helped push me to the finish. As we do with our outside runs we normally don’t talk much. She is blasting the volume on her latest reality show and I’m typically watching the news or a concert with my ear buds in. No need for conversation just having that person running beside/with you will push you when you need it.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th. I started the day with an early morning 8 mile run and then we spent the day at a picnic in the neighborhood I grew up in. It was hot hot hot but we had a great day. I have shared a few pics below.
Have a great running day!
