This week's theme is Running Inspirations. I need to get to bed soon so this post will be short and sweet :)
1. My family
I get to see my little siblings in 2 weeks and then my brother in 4 weeks (yes, I am going to Texas 2 times in October and I couldn't be more excited!!). They inspire me because I want to show them that you can do anything you put your mind to!
2. My Boyfriend
His first half is coming up: Avengers!! We have his long run planned next week (he will do 10, I will do 15) and I could not be more excited. I run so I can inspire him to do great things and also run to make him proud.
3. The Elites
Meb, Deena, Shalene, etc. They are ROCKIN' it and I love it! It is so inspirational to see them train so hard and do so much. They inspire me to try harder, try well and realize that I am capable of great things.
I love reading everyone's journey, stories, recaps. They all inspire me to keep up the good work and also they help to make race weekends so fun!
Above everything else, I run for myself. I love the me time I get while running and I love the sense of accomplishment that comes from setting up training plans and sticking with them and I love the way I feel while racing. It's part of the reason I get so emotional at the end of races-I have literally put my heart and soul into this.
How about you? What inspires you?
