What’s not to love about running? Well right now the only thing I am not loving is the weather. I am sorry but I cannot stop complaining about it. Snow, cold, deep freeze, more snow, and ice storm is what we have been dealing with here in the midwest. I know I can use the treadmill but that does get boring after a while.
Last week I wasn’t feeling well and had to skip a few of my runs. I’ve been tired and sometimes had an achy body. My coach told me to sleep and get some rest. I am feeling better and will attempt to run today.
Before I talk about today’s topic, let me show you the activity I did with my kids yesterday. We did a 3D Hot Air Balloon Card. It was so much fun! Below is the video and pictures of the finished product.
3D Hot Air Balloon Card
Now let me tell why I do love running. 🙂
• The gear – I love treating myself to new gear. It makes me happy and gets me excited to go running. About 99% of my gear is from Oiselle. During the warm wear you can find me running in the long rogas. I have 24 pairs of the long rogas (and 5 of the regular rogas) and always get excited when I get another pair.
• Traveling to different states – I love travelling to various states to run a half marathon. I’m at state #39 and this year I will be traveling to DE, MT, SC, and MI.
• FREE and easy to do – All you need is good running gear and the proper shoes and off you go! No never know once you lace up where running may lead you.
• My time – Running is my alone time. I usually run in the morning and it is the perfect time to clear my head and get ready for the day.

Definitely yes to traveling & all the running clothes (unfortunately for the pocketbook!).
That card is really cool!
I am sure you also want to buy all of the the stuff from Skirt Sports but definitely not good for the pocketbook!
I can remember when my kids were little. I loved the alone time running gave me than too! I am babysitting grandchildren today. Think we will give the 3D hearts a try. Love that idea!
I hope your grandchildren enjoy the project! My kids definitely did and cannot wait to take them home.
I love the aspect of running in different states too. I don’t think I’ll ever hit all 50, but I’d be happy with 25!
You just never know!
The craft turned out so cute! Great job!! Running gear is a favorite thing of mine and so is running in different/new areas! So much fun!
I totally agree about how running is some of the best “me time”. I’ve been able to solve problems or just simply zone out while running, and it’s the best!
I’d love to do more racecations….that’s when running gets expensive!
Yes, racecations are fun but also expensive. I agree!
I think you need to run a Miami half marathon so I can meet you!
Haha! I think I will! I’ve been to Miami a few times but it has been YEARS since the last time I was there. My FL race was done in Ft. Lauderdale so I am sure it will be a different experience than running in Miami.
I admit I am addicted to the gear 😉
That’s awesome that you’ve covered 39 states already!
I am really excited about that number. I am hoping to complete all states next year or in 2021.
39…wow! You are a traveler.
Come to NY again so we can meet.
I only wish that I started running earlier when I had a job where I traveled. I didn’t get it back then. I just love running in new places.
Yes to NY! I was hoping to run the NYC Half Marathon but didn’t get selected. I am going to try again for next year.
Oh too bad. We’ll meet someday I hope
Yes we will!
Oh the Oiselle gear is all so pretty… I have yet to shell out the money for it, but I have a few things on my wish list 🙂
I want everything that they sell! I usually wait till stuff is on sale but some I purchase right away because then it sells out fast.
So… confession time – I said this one someone’s else blog too… but I think I officially have more running clothes than anything else in the closet! I’m prone to getting something new when I’ve had a really good race… and admittedly when I’ve had a really poor race and need some cheering up! LOL. I can’t believe you’ve run in 39 states! Wow, that is quite amazing! You’ll have done all states in the next couple of years I’m sure!
Nothing wrong with having so many clothes! Yes, I am hoping to be done in 2020 or 2021.
Yes and yes! What I love the most about running are all of the friendships I have built. I have no idea what I did for a social life before running
Running definitely opens up many doors to lots of opportunities.
My reason for loving running has changed over the years but right now it’s all about the friendships I’ve formed! Oh yes, and the clothes.
Yes to friendships!
It’s so fun to travel to different states for races! I think it’s a really cool way to experience a new area!
Definitely! There are a few places I never would have traveled to if it wasn’t for this little goal of mine.
I just got my first pair of long rogas and I LOVE THEM. I got basic black, but I can wait to get some fun colors/prints!
Yay! I love the rogas and the fun colors!
