{Monday Motivation} Love the Run

Ok, sometimes running does suck. Especially this winter. I went out for an easy 5-miler on Saturday and it felt like the hardest run of my life. It was 13 degrees out and breathing in the frigid air was less than enjoyable. But I got it done because that’s what we do as runners. Yes, I could have bailed on the run. Yes, I could have gone on the gym and ran the 5 miles while watching endless amounts of Kardashian episodes. But instead I sucked it up and went out for my sucky, freezing run. And you know what, I felt phenomenally better when I got back inside. So when I saw this graphic from Run Pretty Far on Pinterest this morning, I thought it was perfect for today. Here’s hoping for warmer, happier, and less suckier runs this week!

  1. Great motivation! For the record, I would have done the 5 miler inside with the Kardashians, but I have to give you props for getting outside! :)

  2. Yes, sometimes it does suck. Hopefully once spring gets here (if ever) it will be a good reminder of how awesome running can be compared to some of the craptastic running weather we have been dealing with.
