i always hesitate to call myself a runner, but this makes me rethink my reasoning. even though i am not highly competitive nor do i desire to run a marathon, i do run 3 miles a few times per week. i am a runner.
run with your heart instead of your mind. when you think with your mind, you think of the things you can and can't do. but when you run with your heart you forget about what you can't do, and you just go out and do it. run.
I often hear someone say, "I'm not a real runner." We are ALL runners, some just run faster than others. I never met a fake runner. As long as you push yourself every time you get out there you're a runner!
Runner Things Me and running don't always see eye to eye. Some days it hurts more than others. But it doesn't mean I don't do it. I deal with it and I keep running because not everything that is good for you feels good for you. Every day is the day.
Running taught me how to meditate without even knowing what i was doing. That's the thing about running: Your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are the moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderful your life is.
Not much of a long distance runner but I can keep pace for a good while enough to feel like a runner. Best part of going is its my time to just be me with nature. Clears my mind, get a workout, and keeps me healthy.
