Day #133: Runners Are Going To Run

Running is one of the greatest investments I have added into my life and I am already benefiting from the returns.

I have been running for about a two and a half years now and having now run roughly 1400km, I have learned 4 things which I think we should all be applying to our own lives. The best way to do this is to simply get out there and start running yourselves!

Any day I am too busy to run is a day that I am too busy! – John Bryant

  1. Staying Committed To Your Goals
    • Runners are dedicated, that itself is an understatement.
    • Runners fight the urge to give up, and they continue on to CONQUER.
    • Runners thrive off feeling accomplished.
  2. Believing In Yourself
    • Running and completing the run is on you. You are the only one that can get you across the line. You are capable.
    • You are your motivation. Self motivation. Runners learn to build this and believe in themselves.
    • Accomplishing a run, requires determination and a confidence enough to know they can do it.
  3. The Alone Time
    • Perfect way to take a break and clear your mind. This is one of the best things I love about running.
    • It is a chance to think about anything. No interruptions. Just you and your mind. A chance to sort out work issues and any self issues…
    • Running wont mean you run away from your issues, but run out your issues. A way to clear the mind and exercise your body and mind too!
  4. How To Always Be Happy
    • Exercise has a direct correlation with the level of happiness someone exhibits. Anyone who knows me will now understand why I am always happy!
    • Overall running provides physical, mental and emotional benefits. You can do it your whole life. Why wouldn’t you be happy when you are making your physical, mental and emotional aspects of your life better?

So I hope from this, you can see the benefits of running!

  • If you don’t run. Get out there and give it a try.
  • If you are slacking off from running, get out there more and see the benefits trickle through.
  • If you are running regularly like me. Push on and challenge yourself! You champion!
