If you have been following this blog regularly, you know I seem to do my best thinking during my running. Which as for today, I ran 3 miles (with hills) and walked the beach for another 1 and 1/2. Being Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t help but think about LOVE. What does love mean to you? It can mean so many different things to each of us. And it can mean different things to each of us in different times of our lives. Love to me means comfort, warmth, and security. It makes me feel happy, excited, and peaceful. This year I am not part of a “couple,” but I do feel love around me. Love in my job, love in my family, love in my friends, love for running, love for the ocean. As you know by now, I am also in love with my city. I feel love coming towards me as well. I think the universe knows what to give you and when. I also think what you put out into the universe will come back to you. Is it a trade off to have all of these loves in my life and not a romantic love? Or is it possible to have it all? I believe the answer is yes, it’s possible. As you go into this Valentine’s Day, follow my lead. Focus on the LOVES do have in your life. Have faith in the future and be grateful.
If you are part of a “couple,” I strongly recommend you forgo your daily run and enjoy a great kissing session! Some reports say you can burn up to 120 calories and hour!!! Smooch on, responsibly!
If single, throw on some red heels and take on the day!
Happy running and loving-
