If you run, want to run, or try to run READ THIS

Today it is raining. Thankfully ... The new edition of runner's world came in the mail which makes it the perfect day to curl up, drink a coffee and get a few minutes of inspiration.

I read a question and answer in the "ask miles" section that brought tears to my eyes.

If you are a runner, a plodder, or want to run please take the time to read this!

Dear miles
I'm new to running. Why do so many runners dislike being called joggers. David b.

Jogging implies that you lack passion and commitment, that you're out there on the road in $200 running shoes simply for show that you could take running or leave it ( and often do leave it). Ask any runner, and he or she will tell yiu that we run with passion, we run to push our limits, and to live healthier lives, we run races not because we think we will win but to be members of a larger community. Most important, whether we clock 3-minute or 7-minute kilometres, we don't jog -we run.

  1. I kind of want to be a runner but I'm scared to want to start to learn to be one. Crazy I know.

    I'm a new follower and I've linked your blog to my blog list on mine so I can keep up with you :)
