As I have mentioned before, running for me in the past had been for sports I played (field hockey, soccer, basketball, softball), and even used as punishment from my coaches. I had a negative connotation with running just to run for as long as I can remember.
After I graduated college, that was the end of my field hockey career, and the end of running for awhile.
Now, as I have been getting back into running, it has spoken to me in a way like never before and I am continuously learning from it...
#1 - You can't finish until you start.
#2 - Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Just be the best possible you.
#3 - The most gratifying experiences usually come as a result of enduring the most painful trials.
#4 - The mind is a very powerful thing. Training the mind is just as important as training the body.
#5 - Enjoy the silence. There is too much noise in the world. Don’t be afraid of the quiet.
#6 - Listen to your body.
#7 - You are so much stronger than you think.
What has running taught you?
