Inspiration, and that little extra push
Friday, March 29, 2013
First of all I'm very proud because today is March 29th and I was able to go over 500 fitness minutes for the month. :) I usually go over 500 pretty easily but since I came back on the Spark only on March 9th I didn't think I'd make it for the month - well I DID!!! This week helped a lot as I got all my strenght training done thoroughly and I had pretty long walks almost every day (I'm coming back from one! SO SUNNY OUTSIDE!).
Speaking of the weather, the snow is melting, it's muddy outside and it's almost April. Which means jogging season is about to begin - I'm guessing next week, as soon as Monday if I'm lucky with the weather. I missed it! And today while I was walking outside with my sunglasses on and my iPod blasting, smiling, I thought about how it'd be great to be jogging again.
Back at home I don't know how but I stumbled upon this:
I'm guessing most of you guys already know about those two amazing people but I just discovered them. Reading their story fascinated me. It's when I read about stuff like that, that I can't wait to go back to running. Because running feels amazing, but mostly because I just love it when I feel like it's all over - I'm done, can't breathe, can't go a step further - and then I think about every person who struggles more than me in their everyday life and who can still make the next step, and the 10 000 next, until the end of the run, until the end.
When I run, and become tired, my motto is "run for those who can't". And so I run.
