I want to be fit, strong and supple into my old age :D My body likes running - and I like how I feel about myself when I have done a run. My self-confidence has improved - magic!

It always motivates me to be training for something. I like running by a set schedule and the pressure of a looming date/ goal.

I often find my motivation in general (not just running) wanes after I have reached a big goal. My last race was in October and November December were hard for running and left me with a general low feeling. The October half marathon was a big one because it was my first race after having my daughter and I hadn't properly run in a long time before that, preferring other exercise instead. I'm glad I've found my running bug again though I just need to figure out how to avoid the crash after achieving a goal!

I do a race every couple of months, so I have to keep running in between so I can finish. There really is no option of too many days off. As much as I love McDonalds, I don't love the thought of carrying it for 50 miles, so that's my reminder.

I agree with the energy and my general attitude improves when I'm on a workout / running routine. It's such a stress - reliever for me that I can really notice it in my moods when I don't get a good run in, which is ironic because I just started running about 6 months ago! I caught the "runners bug" for sure!! emoticon

For me it's when I haven't ran in awhile and I can tell....I start feeling 'blah' and my skin starts to really break out. Once I start a running routine, watching the progress I make is very motivating.

What is it that motivates you to run, workout, eat healthy or whatever other goals you have?

For me it's the energy I feel and the way I sleep when I eat well. It makes my running so much easier and more enjoyable and means I can indulge in my running for moments of freedom.
