Did you guys know it was National Running Day yesterday?

I don’t like to brand match.
I never expected to go for a “run” yesterday, I set off on a walk with my mom and sister and I figured I would just jog for a bit. I simply put one foot in front of the other and kept moving. The weather was perfect for a early evening jog, sunny and slightly breezy.
I personally find running to be very difficult, I am not a natural runner and I am certainly not in a shape to be out running. However, something was different about the run yesterday (and by running I mean slow jogging), it was easy.
I will probably never use the words easy and running in the same sentence ever again, but I honestly felt like I was floating.
So when 10 minutes rolled by I did not want to stop. In fact, I kept on jogging for a total of 26 minutes.
It took me 26 minutes to jog 2 miles. I realize that I am not setting any records here and I should have stopped at just 1 mile, but something in me just wanted to keep going. And I am so glad I did.
Because even if my back hurts again (and it’s slightly sore now) I will always have this perfect and magical run to look back on.
Gah, I was so freaking happy and proud of myself. I have spent over 365 days trying to fix my back and $500 for two rounds of physical therapy all for this perfectly magical run.
After I ran/ jogged I spent a lot of time stretching, doing my PT exercises and praying that I did not majorly screw up my back.
This was the best National Running Day ever!!
Have you ever had a magical run?
