In case there was any question of whether or not it would or did happen, I assure you, I completed my 7 mile long run yesterday. It was freaking marvelous!
Actually, I should clarify. It was far from easy. I realized one reason for my lack of motivation is the cold. While I’m LOVING having weather changes again, the frigid runs are getting a little tiring and I’m ready for the temps to warm up, at least for my long run. So when I woke up this morning and my phone said it was 10 degrees, I knew that wasn’t happening so after breakfast I made my way to the gym and busted out my run on the treadmill. 7 miles in the same exact place is no easy feat!
But when I was done, I wasn’t only super red in the face, but I was so happy and proud of myself. One mile closer to achieving my goal and that seriously feels amazing.
I’ve mentioned many times that I love finding new music, however it may cross my path. Well about a week or so ago I was at working and this song came on; I didn’t recognize it but I was really liking it when my coworker mentioned how much she really liked this song and needed to know who it was. I think she expected me to know but this time, I didn’t. She ran in back and checked. The song was called “Michigan” by a band named The Milk Carton Kids.
Never heard of ‘em. She quickly scribbled it down on two notes – one for her and one for me. I went home that night, looked them up on Spotify and have been hooked ever since. Now if you knew who they were, insert my scold for holding them from me here. If you don’t know who they are, I highly recommend you listen to this song and then look them up for more. Your ears will love you for it.
I don’t have much more to say except that this is pretty freaking marvelous so you know I’m linking up to Katie’s MIMM. 🙂
When’s the last time you fell in love with a new song or band?
Super cold long run vs long treadmill run – which would you choose?
