Today I'm linking up with Miss Zippy who shares the story of her recent #bestrun on holiday in Austin, and she is kindly inviting others to link up and share their stories on her blog too.
Even if you have only been running for 18 months like myself, it can be hard to decide on a single best run. But last weekend's long run is one that stands out for several reasons for me.
- I climbed 3 of the volcanoes that are dotted around Auckland city, and the awesome views at the top of each was well worth the climb.
- It was my longest run ever, in both distance and time - I ran (and walked some of those uphills!) over 15 km in 2 hours.
- I had been feeling a bit down for a couple of weeks prior, and this run made me happy once again! The challenge and rewards of each climb, the freedom of exploring new routes, and blissfully running at my forever pace, was all it took to come alive again. The jelly beans may have helped too.
