Running

I run. Therefore I'm a runner. Right now I frequently have the feeling that I NEED to run. It's how I cope. I get uncomfortable with the feelings that come up negotiating the grief related to losing our family dog, or feeling stuck in my business and it's like I have an actual itch- I need to run.
I think running is fun. My personality is primarily motivated by FUN! I like to move my body and be active. Cute running clothes are fun! New shoes are even more fun! Races, where pretty much everyone is happy and motivated are so much fun!
My preference is to run with someone- I'm a social type. I could run all day every day if I had someone to talk to. Some of my best friends are people I run with. There really is nothing quite like putting in the miles with someone to allow you to bare your soul.
My secondary motivation is a challenge. For me, when running stops being fun it becomes a challenge. There you have it, it's perfect for me! When running alone or during my OrangeTheory Fitness classes, it's fun to focus on speed, and it's always a challenge. How fast and how far can I go? That's more or less how I ended up running the 2016 Austin Marathon even though, at best, I trained for the half- with hamstring and hip injuries. I hobbled through a good portion of training, and wondered if I really was doing the right thing. A LOT of chiropractic care, Airrosti, and massage, along with taking the best possible care of my body through good nutrition and hydration, supplements, and essential oils allowed me to recover enough to run safely. Still, I wasn't feeling super confident about how fast I could run the half, so I wanted a different challenge. How fast could I run the full without proper training? My long run partner and I were following a plan her triathlon coach had given her, and the long runs seemed long. It didn't feel like a huge stretch. I ended up completing the race with a personal best of 4:06:15. Yay!
Remember how I like a challenge? If I can run a marathon is 4:06:15 without training properly, it's only natural that I can challenge myself to run one in less than four hours. And, if I can run a marathon in under four hours, then I am probably capable of running one in the 3:45 minute time I would need to beat in order to qualify to run the Boston Marathon. Enter my new goal: to qualify for the Boston Marathon in the next five years!
Yay, sounds like a fun challenge.

  9. they're no longer abhorrent and despicable as different cheap call women. they have their very own community and reputation inside the society. As per their working, they have been categorised into chief corporations: company escorts and independent escorts. both kinds are differently recognized for their activities.
