I consider myself an independent, rational, 21st-century woman, until it comes to princes, princesses, and royal weddings. On May 19th, 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said their “I Do’s” and you better believe I was watching! Did you wake up bright and early in order to watch all the guests arrive? Most TV stations began their coverage around 5 AM Eastern Standard Time, with the wedding itself starting at 7 AM. All of this was even earlier for our friends out West.
Getting up at 5 a.m. for a big event? That’s not too different from the time of day we runners often see in training or on race day. And you know what? Our new Duchess of Sussex (yes, I said our, deal with it) is even a runner herself! She is one of us! So what does the Royal Wedding have to do with running? More than you may think!
