Deep Thoughts

I am/was a marathoner but now I'm fat

I'll start this by saying I've done a full marathon. I can really, legitimately call myself a marathoner.

One thing I like about running is that in  lycra, everyone is on an equal playing field.  You can’t tell who has money, who has a high powered job, you can’t even tell who is actually good at running as they might be spritely as they just jogged out of their front door or they might be struggling because they already ran 10km as fast as they ever managed.   438 altre parole

stuff for runners (to read)

I read a ton of blogs:  food blogs, healthy living blogs, running blogs, organization/productivity blogs… I’ve found all sorts of tips, ideas, and inspiration from these blogs, and I love following along in the lives of these bloggers I’ve come to “know.” Reading blogs frequently gives me the motivation to make changes in my life or to stop procrastinating and so something I know I need to be doing. 152 altre parole
