Run On Continued

I just returned from a 2.37-mile run, and I am sitting here trying to catch my breath. This post is a part two of a Motivational Moment-Titled “Run On.” As I was out running today, I remembered that over a year ago I was running with my friends and I was able to run 3.6 miles. It never occurred to me that I would or could run that almost 4 miles. However, I remembered some of the components that helped me go farther than I ever had.  Most importantly, I did not run alone. There were friends on that jog that encouraged, pushed me, challenged me to run. The support of my friends propelled me to run longer than I have ever run.

Running Alone

When I started back running, I started at 1 mile, and now I am up to 2.37, but I have had to work my way up to this alone. Then it suddenly dawned on me that there are patches of this road of life you will have to take all by yourself. There won’t be any people with you to hold your hand; they won’t be there to tell you that you can do it. It will be on you to run, and it will be up to you to run.

Find What Motivates You

Here’s the takeaway, when you are running the road alone, you must find something that encourages, pushes you, challenges you to run on. When you discover it, use it to run the stretch you have to run alone. “Run On”
