Running Memes

11 Mar

I’m back into training for another race, this time the Geneva Half Marathon in early May and whilst I’m enjoying running in the gorgeous sunshine gracing our skies recently I’m struggling again with tight calves and sore shins *sigh*. I’m starting to think that I should change sports because I’m clearly not built for running long distances. And for some strange and unexplainable reason, I keep putting my shoes on and keep heading out the door for another run and keep coming back sore and tired. I don’t know what it is about running (or “runners” if I can call myself that) that keeps me coming back for more. It’s as if after that very first time you tie your laces and finish your first run that you’ve signed some secret, invisible document saying “I will hereby forever be a runner” with no regard to climate, kilometers, injuries or social calendar. But if I wasn’t a runner, then I wouldn’t be able to laugh (out loud) at these…

Enjoy!

    These memes are awesome. 🙂 I’m training for the Geneva half as well! We should meet up for a run sometime (since it never actually happened last fall!).

      Oh fabulous! Yes we should definitely meet up for a run. When do you normally go (morning/lunch/evening)? How did you go in the Lausanne Marathon?

        Usually mornings because I typically work pretty late. What about you? I did pretty well, not my fastest marathon but beat my goal time of 4:30 (and the weather was gross!), so I was happy. Considered signing up for the Geneva marathon but training for a half is just so much more manageable!

        Awesome! My husband said the course was pretty challenging so you did super well on time.
        I try to get a run in during my lunch breaks at the moment until it starts to lighten up a bit more in the morning so I could definitely meet you in town one morning next week.
