Ten Things That Running Has Taught Me About Life

on October 8, 2013

running1

1.  If you can push through until mile 2,  it gets better and easier.

2.  Going out with a buddy or two is always fun but, sometimes you gotta go it alone.

3.  A little competition can be healthy.

4.  Music makes everything better.

5.  Breathe. And relax your shoulders.

6.  For every uphill you have to push through, there’s eventually a downhill you can coast on.

7.  Rest days are every bit as important as the long run days.

8.  Don’t give up. Set goals. Sometimes you will really surprise yourself.

9.  Sometimes the hardest step is the first one out the door.

10.  There’s someone out there who would kill to be in your shoes.

  1. I miss running. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  2. So glad I “ran” across your post 🙂 I needed these reminders. I agree with all ten but #’s 1, 5, 8 and 9 really hit home for me. If I can add an 11th, I would say: Running is cheaper than therapy 🙂
