Happy National Running Day!

National Running Day - June 5, 2013

I run for too many reasons and they wouldn’t all fit apparently! ;)

Today to celebrate the occasion I actually got outside and got a run in!  I taped up my knee in KT Tape and headed out the door.

I got in 3.23 miles @13:35/mile (43:50)… talk about feeling slow! :(  I just have to keep reminding myself that it will get better and I will be able to run as fast as I used to again…I ended up walking about half of it because I didn’t want to push my luck and end up aggravating my knee more than it is already… I actually think it’s getting better (slightly) but that’s a post for another day… Here are some views from my run today.

Remember the Anywhere5k Virtual Run for OKC that I posted about a couple weeks ago?
This was my #run4ock!

It was also for Run With Jess’s 5000 likes on FB giveaway! Go check it out and like her on FB!

What did you do to celebrate National Running Day?
- Got my butt out the door for a run! :)

Do you ever participate in virtual runs?
- More now than “real” ones because I can go at a slow pace due
  to my knee and not feel bad about it…

  4. Looks like a beautiful place for a run! Hope your knee gets better. I do virtual runs sometimes, I tend to sign up for them and forget about it, I need a better system apparently.

    1. I LOVE my running routes! So pretty around here! :)
      Sometimes I do too! Sometimes, if there is a race bib, i'll print it out right away and post it on my bulletin board to remind myself... OR if you sign up through #Anywhere5k there's an option for an email reminder! :)
