Be Amazing

I've been invited by the Women's Running Series to be an "Runspirational Representative" for the Women’s Running St. Petersburg Half Marathon being held on November 24, 2013. I'm still deciding if I want to run the 1/2 marathon or the 5K. If I run the 5K, it will be with one (or both!!) of my daughter's. The kids have to be 8 years old on race day, and Ella will be 8, and Haley will be 9, so I'd love it if they both did it with me. As much as I love running with Ella, I'd love for Haley to do it with me and together we'd follow a 5K training plan because she doesn't "love the run" like Ella {normally} does. But I think she could. I know she has it in her. She is amazing. She loves to be alone with her thoughts, and running could give her that time to think, to reflect and to grow. If for whatever reason the girls decide that they don't want to do it, or can't do it, then I WILL do the 1/2 Marathon. I ran this race in 2011, so I have a time to beat now Tongue Out

I'll update with my decision very soon and then will post my training progress (and the girls if it applies) twice per month. I'll have a discount code to share with you all very soon so that you can sign up and race (perhaps with your children over the age of 8 for the 5K, 12 for the 1/2 Marathon.)

No matter what, I am going to need some new shoes. My IT band issues I was suffering from last week seem to have diminished since I've been taking it easy on the running, and I've been foam rolling like crazy! There are so many cute colors out now, and I want to #beamazing in a pair of new kicks! What are your favorite running shoes??

Everyone says you're amazing

Say you don't know how to do it now,

so you run

It's not that you're bleeding

But you're through with it now,

so you run, so you run

I know that you need it, you can't live alone

So you run, so you run

Everyone says you're amazing now that you're clean

But only you know the real ones are 'cause you've seen

There's only one question I want to ask is it here

and When you hear everyone say you're amazing

Does anyone ask you?

Do you cry in your sleep and do you feel okay

When you run?

Thinking it's Doomsday you got to let it go

So you run, so you run

Pretend you don't see it, that we can live a lie

When you run, so you run

Everyone says you're amazing now that you're clean

Only you know the real ones are 'cause you've seen

There's only one question I want to ask is it here and

When, when you hear everyone say you're amazing

Does anyone ask you?

'Cause I know that you're real

Amazing, amazing, amazing

Everyone says you're amazing now that you're clean

Only you know the real ones are because you have seen

There's only one question I want to ask is it here and

When you hear, everyone says you're amazing

Everyone says you're amazing

(I want you to always feel you're amazing)

Everyone says you're amazing

(I want you to always feel you're amazing)
I want you to always feel you're amazing You're amazing

  • How exciting!  I would say go for the half to be your-amazing-self , but I can understand why you would want to run it with your daughters.  Whatever you decide, you will do great!

    Love the song too!  I never heard of that one.  I'm totally adding it to my running playlist. Smile
