Hatas be yo Motivatas

on August 13, 2012

I hope you read that with a little swag…

Last week I mentioned (I was whining about it) my little peroneal tendonitis problem (completely caused by wearing flip-flops walking around Georgetown for 4 hours) to someone near and dear to me. I did not really expect anything but a sympathetic response – to my surprise I heard in return “you’re not a runner” Sayyy Whaaaaaa! That stings a bit.. nothing hurts more than someone telling you “you’re not _____” when that blank is the exact thing that you have been working so hard to be!!!

This is where you turn that comment into your motivation – I’m not a runner? Well, I may not be amazing at it but I gain happiness and strength and mental clarity and confidence and toughness when I run. (I meant to use and in between each benefit to show emphasis – I am loudly pronouncing these things haha) I am gonna run until I can’t run anymore, there are people who want to run but physically cannot. What is stopping me from running – NOTHING! Just like nothing is stopping anyone else from running or biking, or weight training or swimming or whatever – if there is no physical boundary stopping you, why aren’t you doing it?!?! I have big running/fitness plans for the rest of 2012 and 2013 (yes, I have already planned next year – my planning ahead is necessary) Anyone is welcome to join me…
