Hi there

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I feel like the weeks are flying by. The year is almost half over.
I’ve been keeping all my runs nice and short and it’s been wonderful. I even ran 3 consecutive days (Thursday thru Saturday) and was all excited about running last night for a 4th consecutive day but then the rain, thunder and lightening came and didn’t stop :( So I foam rolled and did some glute and hip strengthening instead.
But this morning I still had the bug to run only it was kinda late and I needed to get ready for work. It was cool and raining so I decided to give up the 20 min I would spend to do my hair which would only become frizz anyway and replaced it with a quick 2 miles. I knew the honeysuckles had just bloomed (I could smell them when I walked Duncan earlier) and I just had to grab one!
2 miles is better than none

I was reminded this morning why I named my pup Duncan. Because he's the same color as my (Dunkin Donuts) coffee. I just changed the spelling. But I call him Dunkin Donuts all the time.

Even Duncan loves a good sweet honeysuckle

Yup, I ran just for the honeysuckles!
This Wednesday is National Running Day and I’m going to head to our local park in the evening for the festivities. They’ll be giving out some freebies and having an evening run hosted by our local running club. And I’m SURE I’ll be surrounded by honeysuckles! I can’t wait! I can smell them already.
What’s your favorite smelling flower?
Do you ever just run a mile or 2 when you’re pinched for time?

  1. Orchids are by far my favorite flower. I don’t think their scent is too strong, but they are just so pretty!! Yes, I have definitely run for a mile or two when I don’t have much time just to get a run in. I feel like it is better than nothing!!

  2. This post made me smile. I can def relate to just running for the fun of running. It’s so nice to just relax. When I’m pinched for time, I normally just suck it up as a rest day. I hate rushing for things so I just relax.
