    Comment
    Two Inspired Runners earned the privilege of calling themselves marathoners for the  first time last weekend. One of these runners started running when she was 62 years young. The other started running after being inspired when the STP bike race passed her house while she was sitting on the front...

    One Step at a Time

    by
    Comment
    When I signed up for my first 10k I wasn’t excited; I was filled with fear. I had no idea how to run six miles. It seemed like an impossible task. At the time, the longest distance I’d ever run was four miles and the gap between four miles and...

    Does 10 minutes matter?

    by
    1
    The Inspired Running community is almost halfway through a 10 minute a day challenge. The challenge is pretty simple: complete 10 minutes of exercise (running, walking, whatever feels good) every day between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve. In fact, it’s so simple that it’s easy to assume it doesn’t really matter. I...

    Embracing Hard

    by
    Comment
    One of my favorite mantras when I’m running or pushing myself towards a new goal is to simply “let it be easy.” Except sometimes, no matter how much I focus on easy, it still feels hard. Most of my goals require effort. Challenging myself to do the unfamiliar requires focus....

    Lazy

    by
    Comment
    Two people this week told me they’re not walking/running because they are lazy.  I know these women and I promise you they are not lazy.  And neither are you. You are not lazy. You might be tired, worn out, disconnected and overwhelmed but not lazy. The reason you want to...

    Who Inspired Running is For

    by
    Comment
    Inspired running is for you if you don’t yet know you’re a runner. It’s in you. But you haven’t given yourself permission to identify with the term ‘runner’. You’re scared of your own power and ability. You want someone who believes in you and helps you see just how capable...

    Out the Door

    by
    Comment
    I’m writing this as my husband is struggling to get out the door to go for a run. He’s stressed out.  His to-do list is full. And he thinks he should be doing something productive instead of running. You know what – I had the exact same struggle this morning....

    Being Bad & Having Fun

    by
    Comment
    I’m not a very a good runner. At least, not by the common standards used to judge running. When it comes to time, I’m safely average. I don’t run with texbook consistency. I’m horrible at following training plans. I regulary fall short of my goals, in time and distance. Some...

    Excuses, What’s Yours?

    by
    Comment
    When it comes to running, or any type of exercise, excuses are rampant. “I don’t have enough time.” “I’m too tired.” “I’ll do it tomorrow.” I’ve used these excuses more than once and I’m willing to bet you have too. But all of these excuses are lies. There are lots...
