5 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before I Started Running

Words That Move You...

Sometimes all it takes is a few good words to get you moving...

"I always loved running... it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs."

Jesse Owens, 1936 Olympic Gold Medal Winner

during the first five minutes of our run, my bff and i blurt out our inspiration for running - "toned thighs!" "firmer butt!" "flatter stomach!" "that late night oreo!" and it always makes me laugh and run better = ) not exactly an inspirational quote, but hey, it works!
