Happy 4th of July

Happy birthday, America!!!  Now it's time to blow stuff up!  That is how we roll here in the good ol' USA. 

I am excited about today.  I started it off with a good 4 mile run with a new friend, Jeff.  I am making more friends through Nixa Running.  I might be one of the slowest out there on the road, but I am doing it. 

It was a lot of fun with Jeff.  He pushed me further at a faster pace than I was used to.  That is the only way I will get better.  I really liked what he said, "You wanted to stop back there, didn't you?  Well every step past that part is making you better."  It is so true.  That is when fitness is being built.  That is when you are bettering yourself. He would help me set a goal, and we would push to that next spot.  I am really excited to be running with Nixa Running.

I am also going to be doing the Warrior Dash with them in Oct.  That will be a lot of fun! If I had not changed my life and started running, I would've never had the chance to meet such cool people. 

Today is going to be a great day!  What are you doing for the 4th?

SO AWESOME you are doing a Warrior Dash. I have no desire to do one myself (i am a chicken) but I would so love to go hang out and one and watch! :)

I heard a quote somewhere that the only way to run faster is to run faster. Which means we just have to keep pushing ourselves if we want to go faster and run further.

You are doing an awesome job! ANd how cool you made a new friend to run with. I love running buddies!
