Today’s post is a super fun link-up with Patty, Erika, and Marcia for their ‘Tuesdays on the Run‘ series. It’s about three wishes for the running genie. I definitely have a couple of them. But, I was able to pick out my top three ones to ask him. Do check out their posts and a bunch of other bloggers for what we, as a running community wish for.
First Wish – No Injuries
Hey genie, with my first half-marathon around the corner, I feel so blessed to have come this far in my training. Everything is going as scheduled. There are good days, there are bad days. My top most wish to you would be to fly me through the rest of training with no injuries. Being a ‘heavy’ runner, it was one of my apprehensions to join the sport. I am always in awe of my growing strength each day. Let those slight twinges here and there, be just in my head.
Second Wish – Mental Strength
Hey genie, you know what all this is about. After all, you think and believe in it, in order for you to will it. I usually go out with a positive attitude that I can do it. But, you know. I am human and sometimes, that’s always not the case. On race day, could you give me the best possible mental grit. I am also going to work on it until then. But, just add your magic to it too please.
Third Wish – Spread The Love
Hey genie, if my other two were just wishes, you can call this my command. It took me 26 years to start running and there are absolutely no regrets about joining in the love so late. Better late than never, am I right? Words can’t describe how much positivity and self-esteem this sport has given me. But, I am having a hard time convincing my friends (the real life ones) about how awesome this sport is. Could you just get them started please? I am trying! Just a little nudge from your end will do wonders.
As always, love you running genie!
If the running genie were to grant you 3 running wishes, what would they be?
