Okay, so I must confess that I am not totally in love with running. I’m not even sure if I even like running. But, I run because of Todd. I run because on the days when Todd isn’t feeling well enough to get off of the couch it’s my job, as his caretaker, to shake things up a bit and impose my strong will on him.
Sometimes our runs are real runs. Like today – it’s finally a nice day and we just got back from a great run together. Then there are the days when our runs are really more like short jogs or laps around a hospital floor. No matter the distance or the pace, at least we get up and out there.
On my run with Todd today, I thought of all the runs we did as a couple and all the runs we did as part of Team Seas It. The memories from each race, the smiles on our friends’ faces, and the pride I felt each time I saw Todd cross the finish line inspired the following video and made me really excited about our 2010 Seas It Running Season:
