Birthday Running❤️

Thanks for all the birthday love everyone!

I love birthday runs…they are just so much fun❤️
As long as I have been a runner, I have made it a point to go for a bday run. And I love to run longer than normal on my bday. I think some people would think exercising on your birthday is punishment… but I clearly am not one of those peeps.
Birthdays (in my own opinion) are for celebrations of LIFE and VITALITY and even a little of HOT DAM YOU SURVIVED ANOTHER YEAR!!! What better way to celebrate than with a run?!

decided she would come with me for my run. She left work a little early so we could run a little earlier than we normally would on a weeknight. How awesome is she and how great is it to have running friends?!

It has been a fairly crappy week, weather wise with rain nearly every day. BUT- I was overjoyed that by the time we started-it was t shirt and shorts weather!! What more can you ask for on your bday?!
We ended up doing 13 miles together before calling it quits. I did two more miles on my treadmill to round it up to a nice 15. 2:07:18 average pace 8:26
I’m really happy with that: there were zero expectations of time placed on this run..birthday runs are meant to be fun! We managed to do great on our run without much effort at all!
