Do you know what I did this morning? I went for a run. That’s it – a simple 6 mile run with no time limits, no other sports attached, and no treadmill involved. I just laced up my running shoes and took off.
I can’t tell you the last time I went for a run just to run (or even went for a run around my neighborhood for that matter). It was very relaxing and serene. My head has been so wrapped up with HIM training and fitting all three sports in at once that I’ve let my running slip a bit. I almost forgot how much I love the sport and how so many miles in the early morning dew fly by.
I think 6 miles is the longest distance I’ve run in weeks. Running is my strongest sport when it comes to triathlon training, so I’ve been focusing on swimming and cycling these first few weeks. I’m grown to appreciate the two, but this morning was proof they’ll never replace my love for a good run.
My run ended with a good stretch, foam rolling, and breakfast.
I’m on a summer cereal kick and I’m ok with that.
- 1 cup Multigrain Cheerios (the last of the box)
- 1/2 cup Shredded Wheat

What’s your sport of choice? Running? Cycling? Swimming? Zumba-ing?
