Running makes me feel like an athlete. It makes me appreciate different aspects of different seasons and the beauty of the world we live in. It makes me aware of things I never was aware of before. It has taught me more about myself then I ever thought “exercise” would. I have pushed my limits. I have found some limits. I have learned I am not a quitter and that I can do anything I put my mind to. It gives me structure and helps relieve stress, but mostly it just makes me happy.
In the spirit of running and this weekends’ San Francisco marathon, I thought it would be fun to do a post ALL about the sport. Included below are workouts, playlists, and upcoming SPECIAL EVENTS to celebrate running health and happiness. Even if you’re NOT running in a marathon (or ever plan to!), I hope these links entice you to make running/walking a part of your fitness regimen.
