Wednesday Word: Passionate

Deb Runs

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 PASSIONATE

A passionate person “shows or expresses strong beliefs, interest, or enthusiasm.”

Yes, of course, what I am passionate about is my running!


What are signs of a passionate runner?

  • Shares her excitement with others and encourages them.

  1. i’m such a fan of the word passion and use it often, especially when thinking/journaling about my life and what i feel i’m created for. running is absolutely one of my passions too (as you know — we’ve reconnected around our loves for running & NYC!). i love that you have so many running pix of yourself!
