I’m not much of a Valentine’s Day person. I feel about it the way I feel about Earth Day and Mother’s Day; shouldn’t we celebrate and cherish our loved ones, the planet and our parents every day? That said, today is a great day to spend a little extra time with the people that we love. I’m starting my Valentine’s Day over breakfast with my sister and ending it with a speed workout on the Waterfront. If the moon makes an appearance, it might just be romantic.
In a lot of ways, running is a relationship. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s great and sometimes it drives you insane and you just want to quit. You get out what you put in and most of the time, the reward is well worth the investment of time, money and heart. Running often makes you a better person and when you’re not running, you miss it dearly. (In my experience, running also saves relationships by making the runner a calmer, kinder mate.)
What are your Valentine’s plans?
