This morning we made the trek across Miami to South Beach. We met up with Amanda (@Runtothefinish) and a group of others for a Resolution Run! It was part of the 5 by the 5th challenge I am doing. Since my foot is still hurting (like a lot) when I run, I ended up walking for most of the 5K. I was beating myself up about it for a while but, I got over it. I run for me. I don't run for anyone else. I run to do my best, and at that moment, I was proud to get up out of bed on January 1st and drive 40 minutes to the beach for a run!
I am glad that we were still in Miami for New years, because who would have wanted to miss this?
I am blessed to have had the opportunity for an adventure in my own city and I am blessed to be married to someone who sees the value in celebrating every day. Every day is an adventure and we have a choice as to what memories we take with us.
Happy New Year everyone!
