I have a new friend on Facebook (have I mentioned him before?). My Thailand friend, Reggie, introduced us. His name is Mark and he is shaming me every single day. It’s quite sad, really.
He had made it his goal to run 1000 miles in 2014 so he has to run 2.7 miles every single day. My math must be off because that doesn’t quite add up to 1000 but I figure he’s adjusting for long runs. Anyway, the man runs at least that every day.
I have a lot of running friends and they come in at a variety of speeds and mileage. But I would say the majority that post are posting some impressive speeds and some high mileage. It’s refreshing to see someone post that he finished 2.7 miles today. That’s so…doable. He ran and he’s proud of it. Some days he runs far more than that but even if he does the 2.7…it’s there.
It’s awesome. I love it. It’s so freaking inspiring it’s totally getting me off my tired exhausting yawning butt.
Okay, slowly. But I can feel it.
I woke up about 3am with a wicked wicked migraine. It hurt too much to move so I just stayed in bed. I did eventually get drugs but when they are that bad it usually hangs around. So I took some meds and slept ~but man, it hung around.
I really wanted to run so I jumped on the treadmill at midnight tonight and threw out a pathetic mile! I was hoping it would be two and half or three but every freaking step pounded my head so I thanked the Lord above for my mile and called it good.
And while I’m at it…
Thanks Mark..for the motivation.
Run on on Friends. And let someone motivate you today.
