Today’s post is really going back to the mission of this blog, to spread the magic that is found when you decide to lace up. Everyday people are making the decision to get out there and it’s truly inspiring.
Not every run is a perfect but everyday you can find inspiration to run one more race, one more mile, or one more step.
So I threw it out to my running friends on social media to get some inspiration and here’s what they said:
Why do I run?
I run to reconnect with myself and to continue to see my body as a strong and capable machine. For years I battled eating disorders and when I finally got into running I was able to quiet these voices and see food as fuel and not the enemy. Everyday it connects me with amazing people and reminds me of what I can achieve when I work hard.
So, why do you run? I’d love to have a comments section full of inspiration so let me know!
Looking for additional inspiration?
Check out #Run3rd - a group dedicated to the 3 things your run for, yourself, your friends and family, and then something bigger than yourself. It’s a beautiful mission.
