It occured to me while out for my run today that I never blog about running. Other than the two times that I participated in the Shamrock Run, I have written next to nothing about this pasttime that has become very much a part of who I am.
Today I want to change that. Several months ago, I was inspired by this image that was posted to the Shamrock Run facebook page:
For some reason, that first rule, never miss a Monday, really struck a chord with me. It has become my ritual...my mantra...my catch-phrase. Whatever you call it, it works for me. I started taking photos each Monday that I'm out running. Usually its nature---what I see when I'm out and about. Sometimes it's my shoes...sometimes my dog. I add my miles, my pace and sometimes an inspirational phrase or something that I am feeling that day. I use Snapseed for the initial editing and then pull it into Rhonna Designs for the fun details. Then I share it to Instagram and Facebook.
Here is the one I shared today:
I know that no one is "waiting" for my #nevermissamonday posts. But I am. It keeps me acountable, even if it's to no one else other than me. That's enough. If anyone is looking forward to my post or is (dare I say it) inspired by my posts...that would be icing on the cake. But I'm not looking for that. I do this for me. I need it. I really need it.
Here's to the start of #nevermissamonday blog posts.
