Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.
This week’s Word is INSPIRATIONAL
I looked up the definition of INSPIRATIONAL and this it what I found: Imparting inspiration.
So what is INSPIRATION?
–a person, place, experience, etc., that makes someone want to do something
In this case, the something is run and even more specifically, run stronger, run farther, run faster.
So here are some of my inspirations:
- Strong Running Mamas
This group of beginning runners and their enthusiasm inspired me to go from just running 5ks to 10ks, 15ks and half marathons.
There are too many to mention but I read their blogs and learn from their experiences. They inspire me to be a better runner (and better does not necessarily mean faster.)
Every time, I run a race, even it’s not my best, I can’t wait to run another race. Races are an inspiration.
- Scenic Places.
I love to run in different places. When I pass or visit a beautiful place, I always want to run there. What an inspiration!
- Running Friends
- Older runners like Anne Garrett, who at age 80 set a Half Marathon record and then at 81, set a 5K record
and Harriette Thompson who ran a marathon at age 92.
They seem ageless. Could anything be more inspirational that that??
Happy Running! What is inspirational for you?
