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!

My 2015 Run Happy Resolution is to run every run like it is my last. Like I may never get the chance to run again. To soak up all of the positive energy that the running community provides and apply it to not only my runs but to my entire life.

I’d like to run more. After 7 years of getting out there 4 days a week, I kind of took 2014 off from running.

Last year I made a promise to my husband that I wouldn’t train or run any half or full marathons because it took a lot of time away from our family time so last year I ran just to run and it was my Run happy year. I loved running my distance my time and being there for my kiddos more. This year we will see what happens.
