A Valentine to Running

Who had a dream about running (and winning) a marathon last night? THIS GIRL! haha…I also consequently didn’t turn my Garmin on an there was a maze at once point, but still. Best. Dream. EVER ย ๐Ÿ˜€

So 5 mils conquered on the treadmill yesterday. This weekend I’m hittin double digits with 10!! (hopefully NOT on the hamster wheel) I also am one of the workers at the Heart, Glove, & Sole 5k here in Lexington. It’s put on by my office so I’ve been doing a lot of the leg work that goes into a race. It’s been weird/fun being on the other side of a race and I certainly have a newfound appreciation of race officials and organizers.

In keeping with my Valentine’s theme this week, I thought how appropriate it’d be to write a valentine to the one thing I love most in this world. Bloggingfoodsigned copies of my Lauren Conrad books…RUNNING! And b/c I’m such a giver, feel free to give this valentine to your own running shoes so they know just how you feel ๐Ÿ™‚


Dear Running,

Roses are red and violets are blue,

I’ve got bad knees so I know the importance of a good shoe.

Also that outside is always better then the gym.

You fill me full of joy right to the brim!

Whether I win or lose,

Or bring up the caboose,

Race day is my personal nirvana.

You’re always there to see me through

All the happy times, as well as the sad and blue.

I love you Running despite this bad knee,

Also I have no friends so please don’t ever leave me….

Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day everyone. If you cold write a valentine to something you love what would it be?

  1. Okay soooo can I steal this awesome Valentine and give it to MY running shoes?? It’s almost time for us to break up though. We’ve had a lot of great runs…but it’s just about time to move on to my next pair…*tear.

  2. I ADORE SUCH MOTIVATING dreams like that!!!!! However, my dreams are always super weird! The other night I dreamt that I lived in a chunk of tofu with PSY (that Korean singer, you know)… Except his body was a Pistachio. WHAT IN THE F?!?!?!?! LMFAO!!!

  3. Talk about waking up ready to run! What a perfect dream for a morning run haha!

    This was to cute, I love the idea, and the picture you thought of, I just might have to pin it ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. So cute! I also have a running valentine post coming up this Friday, but your is cuter because it has a poem! Yay for loving running!

  5. Very nice poem! You are a true artist! ๐Ÿ™‚ I like how you made the heart out of the shoelaces there, very clever. Hope the 5k goes well. Can’t wait to hear all about it!

  6. I’d write a poem to cookie butter. Ahem…. Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Cookie Butter might make me fat, but I still love you. You’re perfectly smooth with that tiny bit o’ crunch, it’s all I can do NOT to eat you for lunch. LOL. ๐Ÿ™‚
