Sometimes it feels like a run will never end! Yesterday was one of those days for me. I did hill work and on the way home the wind was blowing right in my face at about 15-20 miles an hour. It sucked. I just really wanted to quit and walk the rest of the way.
And then I got a text from a good friend
She had been driving by and spotted me. And I am so glad she sent me that text! It gave me just the boost I needed to finish my run in the time I set.
I love to cheer my friends when I see them out being awesome! Or even if I don’t actually see them I just see the Facebook update. =)
But I have never cheered someone I didn’t know (out in public obviously, not talking about races here). But I think I’m just gonna start letting it go. Because there were a few times in St. Louis when strangers cheered me and I felt like a kid at Christmas. I mean seriously, it felt awesome to have a man I didn’t know literally stop what he was doing on the sidewalk, turn toward me to fist pump the air and tell me to keep it up!
So if you are ever out and see someone you know (or don’t know) running, cycling or even walking their dog, the answer is YES! Cheer them on. Let them know you think they’re awesome.
