Let’s be really real about running for a second (or any type of work out, for that matter). Some days, you feel like a super human and can run seven miles even though you’ve never run that far in your life and have been a lazy couch potato for a week straight. Other days, you lace up your sneakers and feel like you “literally can’t even” after mile 0.45 and wonder if there is something physically wrong with you that is making it seem like your legs aren’t capable of moving in any sort of efficient manner. On those “other days,” I’m really not sure how to get through much more than two miles and call it quits. However, for all of the other times — the times when you feel super human and the times when you just feel like you’re capable of running without dying on the side of the road — I find myself constantly searching for motivation. Whether that motivation is needed to help me get through a light run or a new personal record, I’ve found a few pieces of inspiration to keep me moving.
Happy running, and happy Friday-eve!
