Pinspiration Wedneday – I’m Making Myself

Pinspiration Wedneday – I’m Making Myself

I came across this collage that someone else had pinned. It looked like it was part of an ad-campaign, of what I don’t know. The pin itself didn’t lead to anyplace on the internet, so I have no idea about the context of the images.

But it got me thinking – In all the 3 years that I have been running, this is the first year that I have not signed up for a race! While it has given me the freedom of doing what I want to do, at times it also puts me in a  not-so-good mental place (usually in the middle of a tough workout) where I wonder why I am doing this. Why am I busting to do speedwork, why am I swimming 2000yds, why am I sticking with my weights routine, why can I not just slow down and take it easy, why push myself when the gains seem very minimal?

Yes, part of why I am doing it is to achieve a tangible goal, but I am also doing this to make myself fit, happy, strong, enthusiastic, energetic, and so much more. I could go on forever on the whys, but I want to hear from you –

Why do you do what you do?

If anyone knows the source of these images, let me know so I can give credit and link back

Connect with me during the week on other social channels for more inspiration and positive thoughts.

    I go through phases with my running. I do it for a million reasons but they are all dependent on the time of my life. Right now I am doing it to be the best that I can be. I want to see what I am capable of before I turn 45 at the end of the year.
