Run Happy Resolutions and a Giveaway

by Meghann on December 18, 2014

As 2014 quickly comes to an end, I’m already looking forward to 2015 and what the new year will bring.

This year I’m taking a much different approach to my Run Happy Resolutions. Instead of focusing on new PR or distance goals, I’m going to focus on what “Run Happy” truly means to me. I think I lost that at the beginning of 2014. I made the mistake of registering for too many half marathons and got caught up in the stress of racing. This year I’m going to take a more relaxed approach, sticking to shorter distances and easier paces. I’m registered for one half marathon in January (I couldn’t help myself!) and we’ll just have to wait and see what happens after that.

So what does Run Happy mean to me? It means continuing to run through all the hard times and the good times. It means taking Maddie for weekly runs and watching her face light up when we hit the sidewalk. It means watching the sunrise in my final miles before work. It means having an hour to myself before the craziness of the day begins.

I look forward to continuing to Run Happy in 2015. Cheers to a wonderful New Year!
