Finding inspiration in others and hoping to return the favor! Blogging about the journey toward the finish line......
I've always wanted to do a marathon. This year maybe my time come October. But in the meantime, I am defining myself as a better runner by doing half marathons along my intented goal route.
I'm just trying to get past the beginner stages of "this is so painful" running. I hope to train for a half marathon soon.
I think about the fact that 3 months ago I couldn't run for 60 seconds, now I'm pounding out 2 miles outside while only walking for a minute or two. I try to be the best I can be by not letting myself give up and not getting down on myself because I can't run 26 miles (like all my super awesome amazing bloggy friends!). I'm a beginner and proud to be...but I'll continue to aspire to greater distances and shorter times. :) Thanks for the super awesome motivation this morning!!
What a fantastic quote. You never know what you are capable of until you try. And I'm convinced you always astound yourself :)
I started fulling with running a year ago and did the couch to 5K. Then this year I started training for 10 miles. I am overweight (trying to get back to the size I should be) and I can now run 8 miles without stopping. I have come a long way. I am interested to see how I do as I loose the pounds. Next year, half marathon... Lovely blog!
I'm following my half-marathon program through the obstacles and setbacks and I'm very pleased with how I am growing as a runner :)
Love this quote! How 'bout I'm just starting to define myself as a runner, next step to be the best one I can be.Winks & Smiles,Wifey
If I can keep running, not worrying about how far or fast I run, just running because I love to run then I am the best runner that I can be.
A big turtle HUG to each you for sharing how you define your best.... check out tomorrow's thoughts on being our own best ~ how we define our own successes. And watch a super-cool short video about grit, determination, endurance and all-out guts. Kelly, I'm convinced that no matter how long you're a runner, you're still going to have those "this is so painful" days... it's what makes us tougher. :) ~ robin....
Wifey,I'm so excited to think that you're experiencing the "I define myself as a runner.." feeling. I can remember (not too long ago at all for me!) when I finally started feeling that... it was the coolest, weirdest, most amazing feeling! Now, my lifestyle is very much defined by the way I define myself: a runner. Albeit, a slow runner, but a runner nonetheless! Glad to meet you/get to know fellow runner!! :)
