Happy National Running Day!

Happy National Running Day to all!! Did you go on a run today to celebrate? I ran last night, when it was the 6th here in Japan, along with my Insanity workout. I'm doing an Insanity/running hybrid. I love running and just can't give it up, even while doing Insanity. I do Insanity in the morning, and run at night. Mad calorie burn!!

Here is my badge :) If you ran today, you can log your miles! Go to http://running.competitor.com/national-running-day and log in what you ran! I did this morning, and got this cool badge. There is still time left, go run!

Why do I run? I run because I can. I run because 2 years ago, I was 100lbs heavier and literally couldn't run more than 50 feet without wanting to die. I run because it makes me feel strong and beautiful, even with sweat dripping down my face. Running makes me feel like I can conquer the world. I run to clear my head, listen to amazing music, and zone out with no distractions. I run the hills here in Okinawa just so I can stand at the top and look at the ocean, knowing that I conquered another huge hill. It empowers me, it burns mad calories, and it's something that I never thought I could do. I run because I CAN.

Much love,
HarperGirl
