I hate the question "how was your run?" There are way too many ways to answer it. It is so generic and personal at the same time.
Most of my moments of clarity come while on a run. Problems work themselves out, decisions are made, and stress is dissolved. Other than myself, my #BrightOrangeShoes are the only things that remain a constant in these moments. It is because of them I am able to #runabetterlife.
There are 5 major reasons why I continue to run, even when I think I hate it sometimes.
"Winning doesn't always mean getting first place. It means getting the best out of yourself." - Meb Keflezighi, VP of Running, Rock n' Roll Marathon Series #Truth #BrightOrangeShoes #RunABetterLife
I was looking forward to an amazing weekend run, only to get interrupted by the rain all weekend. By Sunday, I wasn't going to have it anymore. Why was the Seattle rain keeping me from running anyway? #BOOM #BOSRunning #DONE
The vibrant bright color of my shoes helps me reflect my best self. I stand out as an individual a part of something. I am more than that runner on the street, but I am #BrightOrangeShoes running on the street.
Look up when running in a new place. You might see something you have never noticed before.
Great friendships can grow from unexpected events. Heck you could be buying your next pair of running shoes when you meet your best friend.
Training takes commitment, that is no lie. But is there really any difference between training for half marathons vs. full marathons?
Goals represent guidelines to lead me through change and growth. No matter if I reach the moon, I will still land among the stars.
