Run your own life

Happy National Running Day!
Thank you to this community I love so much,
for giving me fabulous friends,
crazy competition,
never ending support,
and roads I can call home:)

Running has taught me so many things..
To stand up for myself
To Run my own life 
To do what's right for ME
To fight for progress
To love myself and what I am capable of
To push my limits
To find my comfort zone and leave it behind
To dedicate myself to my goals

Running has taught me,
that NO ONE can tell me how to run my life but me, 
NO ONE can take away the things I have accomplished,
NO ONE can put me down and keep me there,
NO ONE can beat me in the race for myself,
This is MY LIFE


Happy National Running Day 

I will be celebrating today by.....RUNNING (weird. I know).

Visit here to get the "National Running Day" Badge/Bib, and to find ways to celebrate today!

    1. The list of things that running has taught me is longer than I am tall, I may be short but it's still a long list :)

  7. It is amazing how much running teaches us and gives to us. It has completely changed me as a person.

    1. I agree, running has changed everything about me. Even though I ran in high school and college, I am a much different runner now, and therefore a much different (and better) person!

  8. Hi Laura! I see that you're a Cleveland girl! Me too! Anyway, running changed my life about 5 years ago and I've never stopped. Have a great weekend! Are you doing the Color Run Sat? I'm so excited to run it with my girlfriends!
