Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! This week’s topic is “What made you decide to start running?”. Instead of this topic, I decided to share a blog post I wrote a few years ago that highlighted some of my favorite running quotes. I figured we could all use some motivation right about now, right?
This is one of my favorite quotes when it comes to running. I’m not a fast runner (no BQ in my future) so it’s easy for me to say that I run and that I’m not a “runner”. This is such BS. If you run, you’re a runner!
When Oprah says it, you know it’s true! The more involved I get in running, the more I get out of the sport, that’s for sure. More friends, more confidence in myself, more endurance, etc.
This is SO true! Sometimes I have the best runs when I REALLY don’t feel like running. Is that true for you?
This quote was especially true for me when I was training for my first marathon. I had a LOT of doubts about whether or not I could actually do it. It wasn’t until I completed my first 20 mile run that I started to believe in myself that I could complete the marathon. You definitely have to believe in yourself first and then everything else will follow.
This is something I take to heart when I run (especially now). It sucks in the moment, but at least I have the ability to run, and that I am very grateful.
