I found this link on Facebook, which was copied from Runner’s World magazine.
Have I mentioned how much I love Runner’s World? I find it inspiring and I look forward to my copy every month. I have a ritual, first I take out all the subscription cards (I hate those things), then I glance through the whole magazine and go back and ear mark all the articles I want to read. Now it’s ready for reading. Sometimes it takes me a month to get through all the articles I want to read, and I usually hang on to one for a few months until I’m sure I’m done with it, then I take a stack to work for others to enjoy.
Reading Runner’s World motivates me. I love to read about people who turn their lives around with running. It’s very inspiring. I want everyone to get the same thing out of running as I do, and when I read about people who do, it makes me feel good and motivates me to keep running.
I run to feel good about myself. To feel strong. To de-stress.
I am always looking for new ways to relax and unwind. I have a high stress job most days (even when it’s not necessarily stressful, it’s busy and fast paced), so on my down time I want to de-stress. That’s why I run, do yoga, cycle, hike, read, etc.
A friend recently told me about a book to recommend on my blog. She said it was inspirational. So here it is…
Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn
I read the reviews and it sounds like a book worth reading. As I understand it, it’s about meditation for stress relief and living in the moment. I fully believe in that and enjoying the little things in life. I will be putting this book on my Kindle and I will update you at a later date on what I thought of it. If anyone else has read or reads it after hearing about it on my blog please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.
Please check back often to find suggestions for other books/articles to read that will motivate and inspire you to stay fit and be the best person you can be.
Thanks for reading! 🙂
