I don’t always get in on the National ____ Day fun on social media, but today when I woke up I realized it was Global Running Day. You may or may not know how I feel about running (if not, you can read my post about it here), but I thought it was important to celebrate. And to post a photo to commemorate!
I thought I’d ask my husband to take a photo of me running, but then I thought about my friend. We’ll call her A.
A is a triathlete and a blogger. She’s always posting these beautiful pictures of herself running or biking or swimming: “Did 8000 meters open water swim in Hawaii with piranhas,” or, “What a beautiful day for a mountain bike ride through the shark infested creek in the pines,” or whatever.
I mean, it looks like she takes a professional photographer with her on all of these adventures!
She uses self-timers on her phone’s camera.
So thinking about A, I thought, “She is always posting these gorgeous photos of herself … maybe I can do it, too.”
So my running partner, Leia, and I went for a run, armed with my camera phone.
And we had a few outtakes, which I thought I’d share here, just for fun.
Finally, success! I came up with a decent one:
So all that to say, Happy Global Running Day to you!
