Saturdays Are…

Saturdays are for double dipping.

A 5:30 run for the sunrise.
A 5K race for the bling.







Saturdays are for mileage.  You parlay that time on your feet, 10, 12, 14 weeks of training, into a half (or full) marathon, a deep satisfaction and realization you are a changed person.

Saturdays are for understanding your legs will go, it is your mind that needs training.

Saturdays are for speaking with Jane.  We only see each other at local races.  Jane is 73.  She has been running for 40 years.

Saturdays are for being thankful I can run.  Jane can run.  We can lift our faces to the Spring sun and breathe.  For right now, on this March morning, we will accept the breezy, blue sky, our achy knees and miles of camaraderie.

What are your Saturdays about?
Do you know a “Jane” who inspires you?

  1. A Beautiful reminder – You parlay that time on your feet, 10, 12, 14 weekends

    I have to start my Saturday’s long run or maybe Sunday.
