Got some favorite things?
I actually have so many favorite things, it's hard to narrow it down to the "top favorites." I'm taking a stab at it, and starting with one of my favorite topics....RuNnInG! Here's my five favorite things about my favorite sport:
1. My colorful gear. I love the color black (who doesn't?), but it's kind of over-done in the fitness arena (in my ever-so-humble opinion). I know, black is slimming, and it "hides" things underneath that we don't necessarily want others to easily see...but I'm tired of playing the "black gear"game. Thankfully, nowadays, there are options aplenty for those of us who feel (somewhat) smothered in a sea of black.
|It's no secret that I LOVE color...and I'm not afraid to wear it|
2. My runner friends. I could go on and on, forever and ever (and several days) about the strength, inspiration, support, and genuine love shared among runner friends. There are several local friends who I see often, in training and in races. And then there's the ones I've met through social media. My life has truly been blessed with all the wonderful peeps that came to me through our mutual love of running.
|It's true...one can never have too many friends, especially if they are runners!|
3. Running accessories (well...my five favorite accessories).
--My Ipod ("just" a Shuffle,but it's been with me for three marathons, one ultra, 25+ half marathons, many shorter races, and thousands of training miles).
--Sunglasses (always, ALWAYS, a necessity)
--Headbands (my newest love!)
--Compression sleeves (oh-my-goodness, they make recovery go SOOO much smoother!)
--My shoes (duh!)
|Color, compression sleeves, pretty shoes, Ipod, and a funky head band....these are a few of my favorite things...|
|Some races are cold!|
|And some come with fun bling|
What are some of your favorite things about running? Do you love everything about it? Or do you love some aspects and hate others?
