Motivational Monday

Monday Motivation

For me, running is my solitude. My happy place. My impossible that has become possible. And my reason to believe everything I see in my dreams will. And has. Become reality. Lately running hasn’t been about how far I have gone. How fast I have gone. Or how far I need to go. Or even if I went at all. No. Lately running has been about my love of running. The fact I can run. And seeing the hearts in nature that I believe, have led me to where I am today.

I want to hold onto this feeling. Tightly. I don’t want to forget where I have been. Where I have been is what gives me the wisdom to know anything I dream of is possible. But you see, May is almost over. June is already beckoning me. Serious training will begin for my races in the fall. And I know me. Time and distance will matter. Sometimes I will be too hard on myself. No wait. Most of the time I will be too hard on myself. And as much as I love to race? I love running for the sake of running more. So for the last days of May and going forward I need to do something differently. I need to hold tightly to this feeling. I need to remember where I have been. I need to remember what it took to get me from back there to here. But most importantly. I need to remember in the coming months. There isn’t a race. Or a person that is able to take away my love of running. Well. Expect me of course. And that my friends will be a challenge in itself. But I am ready. And waiting. For real training to begin. Like a boss.

Is Monday being nice to you?

What did you do today to be active?

Picture this. An e-book. My thoughts. The hearts I have found. And the hearts you all have sent me are in it. What do you think?

Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!

  1. I am new to your blog (only started reading it over the past couple weeks). I am fairly new to the running scene as well (starting in Feb. 2013). When I first started running…I ran for the sake of running. I wasn’t concerned about pace, time, or PR’s. I did it because I like being outside and feeling like I am doing something good for myself. Now, I am gearing up to run my first 1/2 marathon in the fall (eek!!). But your post today really hit home with me. It made me realize that not every run has to be a PR. That sometimes to just get out with a friend and run is nice. To not feel like you have to worry about your distance or your pace, but to just enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Thanks so much for these motivational words today!! They really made me realize why I enjoy running so much!


    • Thank you so much for your thoughts! Its so easy to get caught up in times and distances, especially when training for a race! All the best with your training! I have no doubt you will do awesome running your half in the Fall. Eeek so exciting! 🙂


  2. You can do this!! I’ll be thinking of you. After a hideous half marathon, I’m trying to get back to that running because I love it. As for today, Pilates beckoned. The e-book sounds awesome!


    • Awe, thank you so much! I hope you get back to the love of running sooner then later. 🙂 Pilates sounds nice. I have done it, but I can’t seem to love it enough to make it part of my my routine just yet. Its such an awesome addition to strength training, I need to though! 🙂
