Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: What are five words you would use to describe yourself? You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
This week’s topic isn’t necessarily running related, but a topic we thought would be fun to cover.
I’m a super Type-A person so being organized is definitely a word that describes me well. I don’t do well with chaos so I make an effort to have a plan/to-do list daily so that I can feel accomplished. I realized how crucial this was last year when there was so much uncertainty in the world.
If I truly believe in something, I will do my best to spread the word about it, especially when it comes to anything related to fitness. Obviously I love running, so I’m always happy to talk about the subject with new runners. It’s part of the reason I’m the run coordinator for the Black Girls Run! group in my city. Group fitness, whether in the studio or virtually, is also something I’m super passionate about. That is why I’m always share my love of Peloton and Orangetheory Fitness. Not fitness related, but I’m also really passionate about social justice issues and food insecurity. I don’t touch on those topics on my blog, but I do a lot of work in spare time for both.
I always thought of myself as a pretty motivated person but I proved it to myself last year. The first day of lockdown I did my own OTF style workout for an hour. It was at that point that I knew I would be okay and would definitely be self-motivated to workout at home. It’s definitely not easy, and some mornings it’s a struggle, but I know that working out is necessary for my physical and mental health, so it’s always worth it. Planning my workouts for the week on Sunday evenings is one way I stay motivated to workout as well.
I make an effort to laugh every day. I am firm believer that laughter is good for the soul. This is why I’m all about funny memes and watching ridiculous videos on TikTok. There’s a lot of pain and sadness in the world so I can bring some humor to anyone, it’s totally worth it. Plus, who doesn’t love to laugh?!
Although I’m an introvert and tend to be quiet when first meeting someone, I always try to be friendly. When running outside I always greet runners with a smile, wave or a head nod. Sometimes this isn’t acknowledged, but that’s okay, at least I know I did the right thing!
Tell me: What are five words you would use to describe yourself?
