Very Inspiring - Not Just For Runners

Thursday, August 23, 2012

"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." - John Bingham

I didn't write this. I just found it, loved it, and wanted to share it. It was too much for a status update, so it's a blog instead! It really speaks to those who have entertained the idea of running, but just never saw themselves as "a runner". That's what I thought for the longest time. Then one day I just went out and did it! Nothing fancy. Just one foot in front of the other. Enjoy and find inspiration from it!

    Great blog, I loved running before my accident left me paralyzed! It was amazing to be out and get better and better! Until you are out doing fun runs, even marathons and it's still just you! Think about how we are wired and the amazing things our body's can do! Go out and love those legs no mater what size, no matter how strong, feel the miracle they are to allow you to just move around, stand up, work them out and make them strong...they will serve you well!

    I like it! We sure do need to talk to ourselves in that manner don't we? What ever we do we should own it right?
