I've started decorating my new place a bit. I used to hang my medals on one hook, just to have them up somewhere. Here's the thing: I love running the marathon every year but I have a hard time talking about it because I don't want to sound braggy. I really do love running and I know some people hate it. I get it. But when I talk about running the marathon I get really excited about all the people cheering, the neighborhoods, meeting other runners, the excitement early in the morning before the race starts, etc etc. So I've decided to block out other people's negative feelings about running or how they hate working out. I get it, you hate going to the gym. You think that I love going all the time?? I have bad days too when I don't want to run or get on the elliptical or go to a cardio class. But working out is a huge part of my life. And I'm going to be a little egotistical and hang my marathon medals on the wall. Why not? I earned them.
