Monday Motivation — I Would Run To You

I'm so proud of my husband who completed his third half marathon this weekend at the Big D Marathon. He set a new personal best, despite the rain, wind, and even hail. I can't possibly imagine completing such a feat in those conditions but he was able to do it in stride. The tremendous discipline he has with running is such an inspiration to me to run stronger.   

Nike Free's new two-minute commercial spot "I Would Run To You" is so endearing and clever about a couple's love for running. It's about opposite coast lovebirds who start running to meet each other in the middle (my favorite line: "Kansas City, it's the Paris of the Plains!"). The girl in her neon pink Nike Free shoes has no trouble with her run, but it's a bit of a struggle for the dude. I guarantee it will put a smile on your face.

Wait...I want to know what a treadmill class entails?! And this video makes me mad that Mack and I slept in and missed our run this morning! Ha!

Such good inspiration! Hopefully someday I will get to the half marathon point - may be a while 5k was difficult! Congrats to your hubby :)
