National High Five Day is upon us, and it brings awareness to one of the best ways to celebrate, congratulate, and commune with those around us after an accomplishment has been reached.
How do you celebrate the end of a run, the completion of a goal, or the finish line of a race?
1. High five.
Everyone gets one. My mom, my training partner, the random runners around me. Because when I win, we all win.
These are tears of JOY. This was a defining moment in my life. I can’t believe I’ve come this far.
That runner’s high, though. I just feel SO GOOD. I have never felt THIS GOOD.
4. Humble brag.
Oh no big deal, just killed this crazy marathon. It’s not like I’m anything special, just little ol’ me, running for fun. Ain’t no thang.
5. Long embrace.
You’re my best friend, man. I never want to let you go. Have I ever told you how much you mean to me? Let’s hug it out.
6. Power trip.
Feelin’ super fly, super powerful, and undeniably awesome. I can do anything. When’s the next 100 mile ultra marathon? Sign me up.
I’m never getting up again. Never. Everything hurts and I am dying.
No matter the pain, the muscle fatigue, or the sheer embarrassment of making a spectacle… I made it and I feel like dancing, dangit!
Time to crank up that post-run playlist.
