It is fitting that my first post of the year is commemorating the 3 year anniversary of my very first run. Well, it was more like a sweaty, painful, oxygen deprived run/walk but it was 3 years ago today.
And I did the anniversary up in style too! I went for a run in Montpellier France with my dear friend. It was kind of a crappy run; cold and snotty. But it was a beautiful course and I had good conversation with someone I just don't get to chat with enough and I came back to her cozy apartment and got to cuddle with the Cap for a bit before he hand crafted us lattes to go with breakfast in our cute little French apartment.
Thanks Ali and Victor for all your generous hospitality. Staying here has been such a blast and getting to see your cuteness makes me happier than I can say.
Thanks Captain for coming on this trip with me. You are my favorite person to experience new things with and I am beyond grateful for the memories we've gotten to make here.
Thanks Self for sticking with the running for these past 3years. It has not always been easy or pretty but I'm SO glad that is has become part of who I am.
More on the trip and what is to come in the next running year later1!
