Hi ‪#‎Frogger15‬ friends and supporters!

As you may have noticed, I didnít post last week Ė my ‪#‎running‬ progress was at a standstill and I was therefore not feeling very inspired to complete my weekly post. So first off, apologies are owed to Greenways Land Trust, the Frogger 15 organizing committee, and Steve at Outdoor Addictions Ė itís not fair that my lack of progress translated into less promotion of the Frogger 15; and Steve at Outdoor Addictions is doing his part to get me ready for running 15km on September 19th, but Iíve been slacking at my end. I am committed to completing the entire Frogger 15, so with my temporary blip in training behind me, I am back at it!

Before today, I mostly ran after work, midday, or later in the evening Ė making time to get out when I could fit it in (letís be honest, if I have time to watch TV, I have time to run, but sometimes TV won out). I had run twice in the morning, but really do prefer to stay in bed as long as I can. That whole routine (or lack thereof) has not been conducive to sticking to a running plan, so last night, I went to bed early and set my alarm for 6:40am Ė determined to create a new habit of running before work three days per week. I ran through the streets in my neighbourhood with no particular course or destination, just turning corners or running straight when I felt like it. The smell of the weekendís rainfall still lingered in the air this morning, and I could see that gardens, flowers, trees, and lawns were a bit perkier after a much-needed soak. A few other highlights on todayís run were the Laughing Willow Community Garden, a neighbourhood book exchange, the Rotary Seawalk, Transformation on the Shore carvings at Frank James Park, and a Habitat for Humanity sign promoting their next build. So much beauty when one takes the time to look. And that is one of the things I will keep in mind as I refocus my running efforts Ė getting to be outside, observing the beauty of my community, being an active participant in Campbell River life Ė the people, the environment, and spaces that make up the place I call home were the original inspirations for running the Frogger 15.

All of us of the Frogger 15 Organizing Committee and at Greenways Land Trust hope to see 2015 be our biggest and most successful Frogger 15 to date. Please join us by participating in the 15km solo, the 3-person 5km relay, the Tadpole run, as a volunteer, or as a sponsor. Invite your out-of-town running friends to come to Campbell River on September 19th, ask your co-workers to join a relay team, challenge your partner/spouse to train for this fun race, encourage your family members to participate in whatever way suits them best. Help us spread the word. And if you are at all inspired by my efforts and/or would like to share your running story and own inspirations, Iíd love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading. Happy #running #Frogger15!
