Saturday Morning Motivation

Good morning!!!  Hope that everyone is up and at it this morning.  Unfortunately, a Friday night concert and a Saturday morning long run don’t necessarily mix, but we’ll see how my run goes this morning.  I’m not expecting it to be stellar, but crazier things have happened.  I just feel tired.

The 7 Bridges Marathon just posted this on their Facebook page and I thought it was so true.  Running is at times more mental than it is physical. We run until we reach the end.  Relentless forward progress.

Go be awesome! 🙂

Saturday Morning Motivation

Hi ya’ll!! I have been MIA the last few days and that can only mean one thing…school!! With lots of long days, Open Houses (mine and Hayden’s) and keeping up with all my workouts, I didn’t have much of a chance to get any blogging time in.

I wanted to make sure I got in a Saturday Morning send off!! So lace up, gear up and get ready for your Saturday morning run!!

Our Sole Intent was speaking to me just yesterday!! With my marathon long kind of days this week, it seemed like I was running through the last few days.  
This was the quote with this picture

…running is so much more than finish lines and medals.  It’s the day to day grind of showing up and putting one foot in front of the other.  It’s LIFE training. It’s getting uncomfortable, savoring the good miles and not-so-good miles. Victory and failure…it’s living + loving + moving.

~Our Sole Intent

Have an awesome Saturday, friends!

Go be awesome! 🙂

Saturday Morning Motivation

Good morning, y’all!! Hope your morning is as beautiful as the one we have here in NC! A little bit cooler temps the last few days have helped me feel better about running in the summer.  But, I’m pretty sure summer isn’t done with us yet.

For this morning’s motivation, I found a gem on Facebook yesterday!! It made me laugh and it’s fairly light-hearted. I’m hoping it makes you laugh too. We need a little laugh sometimes to just clear the air.


Race Addict posted it on her page and I loved it!

Have a fabulous Saturday, friends!

Go be awesome! 🙂

Saturday Morning Motivation

Happy Saturday!!  I got my long runs done this week on Wednesday and Thursday but they weren’t without some suffering and struggle.  Wednesday’s workout was the worst I’d had in a long time.  Who wants to do a long run at 6:30pm in 90+ degree weather, full sun and humidity?!  Not this girl.  But we sometimes gotta do what we gotta do.  Thankfully, there were about 40 others out there suffering too and the promise of frozen yogurt and a cold, wet towel were enough to keep us all moving.  It’s the little things.

For this Saturday’s motivation, it’s short and sweet.  I thought it was perfect considering how I’ve been feeling running in all this summer heat.  When is fall again!?

Even through all those really tough runs, the struggle is teaching us something!  We are tougher than we thought  We kept going when our minds and bodies were yelling to stop, but our hearts were the only thing keeping us moving.  The work we do today will help us on that first cold day when running seems effortless.  It’s the struggle that makes us better.  If it was all easy all the time, where would the celebrations be?  Celebrate the struggle.  Love it. 

Go be awesome! 🙂

Saturday Morning Motivation

Good morning!  As you are lacing and gearing up for your long run this morning, I have one last thought before you head out the door.

I feel awful because I saved this and I have no idea where I got it from!  I just loved it! I tried doing a Google Image search and just found a bunch of 2015-07-29 09.40.59 The visual I get with this is so strong.  I just see with each step forward erases those things that have disappointed us, caused us to second guess ourselves, and held us back from achieving so much.  One of the things I love best about running!  It’s through running that I get my best ideas, solve problems, and find new beginnings.

When you head out today, think about all the wonderful things running does for us.  It’s so much more than physical.  Is it a clean slate? New insight?  Does it erase failures or Ill feelings?  What has it given you?

Go be awesome! 🙂

Happy Saturday morning!  It’s almost time to hit the pavement.  A group of us are headed to a local trail to run around Salem Lake.  We haven’t been out there in some time so I’m looking forward to it.  One loop is 7 miles around which is perfect for today’s long run, 7 miles!  I have 8 tomorrow.

I got to thinking that right around now is when lots of people are starting their fall marathon/half training so I found just the perfect thing!  It’s from Our Sole Intent again.  I just love their stuff.  Can you tell?!

2015-07-17 11.10.58

We are all a part of a running family, cheering each other on!  As we all embark on our own training journeys, we are tied together!  Whether you are tackling those miles alone or with your own running crew, you have others near and far, rooting for you!  So for the next several weeks, we are all one big training family! 🙂  Let’s do this thing!

 Go be awesome! 🙂

Good morning!!  A beautiful day awaits us all! 🙂

I had to juggle around my long runs this week but I’ll be getting a few miles in today.  I’m headed to a local track for running assessments for the Women’s Only Running School.  All the participants will be running a timed mile so that they can be placed into groups based on their abilities.  I’m ready to get my cheering on and encourage all these women this morning!  For some of these women, it could be the longest they’ve ever had to run or walk.  Today starts their journey!

For this morning’s motivation, I went with that theme.  Our Sole Intent again has just the right sentiment.

2015-07-17 11.11.52

The first step is the hardest, but trust that it is the right one.  If you are already on your way, then trust that you will arrive at the end result just when you supposed to.  It’s your journey, your run, your pace, your race.  Just be in the moment and trust your journey.

Go be awesome! 🙂

Saturday Morning Motivation

Who said a bracelet company couldn’t dole out running motivation?!  Well, Alex and Ani‘s #motivationnation statements and quotes are on point sometimes with running.

Here it is!  This Saturday’s morning motivation:

2015-07-07 09.14.28

A simple statement, but uber powerful!

Move your mind out of your way.  Don’t listen to that little voice saying “can’t” and focus on the one that is saying “it’s possible, I can”.  Stop thinking negatively.  Move towards possibility; move towards positivity.  You can do it.  I believe in you.  You can. You will. Be brave. You got this!

Go be awesome!

Happy Saturday!  Hope that you are well this beautiful morning.  I’m headed to the beach today and while it’s normally my long run day, I’ve made it my one mile “rest” day.  I just didn’t want to stress out trying to get a run in while working around our road trip.

This Saturday’s motivation comes from Our Sole Intent.  They just released their newest inspiration, The Amazing Run.10347484_947052355340918_2155398572469881643_n

Yes, life is amazing!  We are lucky to be able to do what we love.  Breathe it in.  Enjoy nature.  Enjoy the peace.  Breathe in, breathe out.  Run with your heart! Appreciate life and all it’s goodness.  Go be awesome.

Go be awesome! 🙂
