#ThursdayTriumph - #WeRunSocial #AllTheFriends

I love Thursdays because I get to hear all about your Triumphs and I get to virtually visit with each of you!  This is your chance to gush, brag and boast and get patted on the back for it!  Share Your Triumphs with us!

This past weekend at Rock n Roll San Diego Full & Half Marathon - San Diego was an EPIC day in the short history of the #ThursdayTriumph link up!  Why?  Because ALL THREE of us were in the same place at the same time and with the same love!

I LOVE LOVE these 2!  How lucky am I to get to share a part of the social media universe with Linzie and Carlee???  So, in honor of RNRSD and all the friendships running has brought to me, I want to introduce you to a little thing called We Run Social.  Remember when I ran the Phoenix Marathon and the #ItsGoingDownAtPhx hashtag?

Well, turns out, we didn't want the party to end and we have maintained near constant contact with each other.  The group has slowly become larger to the point where there is now a FB page and even gear you can purchase here.

So what is We Run Social?  It is the beauty of running and runners.  It is making friends because you have running in common.  It is going to a race and seeing a friendly face.  It is knowing that no matter where you go or what city you race in, you are not alone because YOU ARE A RUNNER!

It is seeing the last hill on a Half Marathon and looking at the side of the road and thinking, "There is the support I need."

It is having a group of fellow mother runners who get it.  Who get how you can feel guilty and exhilarated all at the same time when you go out for a run.

It is knowing that runners just get it.  Get the need to be around other runners ALL THE TIME and never wanting that feeling to end.  Of introducing your children to your running friends ... and your running socks!

One day, I may not be able to run anymore.  But you know what?  All those miles will be worth it.  Friendships made thru running are permanent!

Me and my BRF Coach Jenn!

So GUESS WHAT Running Friends?  Like it or not, you've got a friend in me for LIFE!  My running friends ARE my TRIUMPH!

So please link up your post with us!  Here are the rules:

1. LinzieCarlee and I will start the LinkUp Post every Wednesday night by 11:59 EST. It will be hosted here, on SharpEndurance and on CarleeMcDot. You can link up your posts any day of the week but the most common day to do so is Thursday. The post can be about any TRIUMPH in your life! Each linkup will be open for one week only.

2. Entries that are not associated with a POST or just linked to your homepage will be deleted. 
3. Link back to Running with SD MomSharp Endurance & Carlee McDot so others can add their link up and find others too! You can use the above graphic if you'd like! Use #ThursdayTriumph so we can find you.
4. MOST IMPORTANT: You MUST visit the person's blog who linked up directly before you and leave them a motivating comment and share their POST. This is the most important part of the linkup. We want lots of links and we want to help each other out. This is MANDATORY! 
5. Void where prohibited.  

Tell me about your running friends!  Are they your valued treasures like mine are to me?  Where would I be today without my running loves?

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom
