I have been running everyday.

If you follow me on instagram you know that my favorite part of my run

is the END!

{it sure does feel good when you’re done}

I feel like I’m running my butt off,

but nope…it’s still behind me,

and too much of it in my opinion.

But still..I run,

and I run,

and I run.


Even when I’d rather be eating doughnuts
