Even when no one is listening…

“And Run”

0625131337

Today I ran my first Ten K.

Actually, more than that. 6.5 miles all together…. despite the fact that I am in the “danger” zone with my asthma right now.

1 mile for each of my phenomenal brothers: Shawn (22), Michael (19), Malachi (15), Camren (9) & Colby (8). Then another 1.5 miles for myself while listening to And Run by He is We on repeat.

<—– Here I am all sticky and gross after my run. Feeling rather empowered as a runner. Next race marker is the half marathon. I’ll be adding to my endurance and strength training the next couple of months with hopes of working myself up to 13.1 miles.

——–> Here I am feeling refreshed after a nice cold shower. Taking the rest of the day off to  enjoy an evening at the Huntington Drive-In with the bestie.

Kinda wish I had the courage,
A bit of bravery.
So tired of waiting on a man to come and save me.
Wishing I had everything,
Or something really.
I do admit it,
But now I’m thinking freely.

I’m going to open my mind to all these,
New found exciting possibilities.

I’m making all my own plans,
Throwing all my old ones away.
Gonna grow up, Be someone.
Draw a map, find a path.
Take a breath and run.
And run.

Filling my head with words to encourage me,
Gotta get my act so straight so I can truly believe.
That what I’m waiting for, is really worth the wait.
Stop bringing myself down,
I gotta know what makes me great.

I’m going to open my mind to all these,
New found exciting possibilities.

Oh ah oh ah oh ah oh oh.
I’m making all my own plans,
Throwing all my old ones away.
Gonna grow up, Be someone.
Draw a map, find a path.
Take a breath and run.

I am trying to get past this,
Be better than I once was.
Tired of waiting, on someone else.
I am trying to get past this,
Be better than I once was.
Tired of waiting on someone else,
I can fix it by myself.
Oh ah oh ah oh ah oh oh.
I’m finally taking a stand,
I’ve learned from all my mistakes.
I’m making all my own plans,
Throwing all my old ones away.
Gotta grow up, be someone.
Draw a map, find a path.
Take a breath and run.

Run, run, run, run.
Run, run, run, run.
