Sometimes inspiration comes in the form of a great night of sleep. Other times it comes from seeing moms, just like me, finding the energy to work out.
Especially mother runners. I mean, it completely blows my mind to see moms training for races — especially marathons! How do y’all do it!?
After I had my first (and only, up until this point) baby in October 2012, I committed myself to do all that I could in regards to training for races. Races like Pretty Muddy inspired me to lace up, get out there, and hit the pavement.
I’ve successfully ran more miles & times in the last 9 months than I have in my entire life. And the biggest difference between now and before? Now I enjoy it! I even look forward to it!
But I’m human. I still have moments where I struggle to lace up and get moving. And in those moments, all I have to do is look at my Twitter and Instagram feed; all I have to do is pay a quick visit to a favorite blog or two; and then I’m ready to hit the ground running. In those moments I find inspiration from people like you! Women sharing their successes and their struggles — it means everything to me to be able to find motivation with you.
And for that I thank you.
