THANK GOD IT'S SUNDAY!!! I can hardly believe I GET TO do some of the stuff I do! I'm always saying how every morning, I am GRANTED ONE MORE DAY, ONE MORE CHANCE, ONE MORE OPPORTUNITY to LIVE THIS LIFE! Then stuff like what happened today takes place.
Day 392: I joined Trent and Jesse (who work at Fleet Feet Tacoma), along with Sam (who works at Fleet Feet Bonney Lake), and joined them for their Super Gay Ultra at Point Defiance Park. The three of them were running a 50-mile Ultra as a fundraiser for the Rainbow Center, which is an LGBTQ community center. It was suggested to me that since I always seem to be on the hunt for a 50-mile distance to conquer, I should run with the guys today. I never got signed up for the fundraiser, but I do plan on donating through Jesse's fundraising page.
As you can see through my pictures and video, I had an AMAZING day!!! I did not complete my 50 miles, but I'm good with that. I started out with the guys, who are all faster than me to begin with. I slowed down. After tripping and falling on the trail a couple of times, I slowed down considerably. I ended up running a bit on Five Mile Drive, then walking a LOT. I was still set on my 50-mile goal, but I was hurting from all that running and walking. Plus, I had tripped and fallen a third time. The first two times were on soft dirt and the third time was on a bed of large, dried pinecones. I was on my last loop, but WHY NOW? 😂
Stay POSITIVE and GRATEFUL, my friends! Have a PHENOMENAL day/night!!! #tgisunday #grateful #gratitude #positivityalwayswins #positivity #perspective #mindset #run #runnersofinstagram #runningwiththeCOOLKIDS #streakingwiththeCOOLKIDS #neverstopstreaking #runningismymstreatment #ms #mswarrior #multiplesclerosis #multiplesclerosisfighter #thisisms #rainbowcenter #tacoma #pointdefiance #park #shanenicolich #garyvee #VaynerMedia
