Running Tip #2- Start With the Small Things

 Find out what you are capable of when it comes to running. Run for a mile, and then walk a half mile, run for a mile, walk a half. Eventually you just start pushing yourself a little further and a little further. If you run out a certain amount of miles for example 2.5, that means you are 2.5 miles away from home right? Or your car maybe.  You have to get home or back to your car... so run 2.5 miles back, and you just ran 5 miles! It starts with little goals. You could also try signing up for a half marathon like I did. It is great motivation to run. You wake up in the morning, and instead of just dreading the run, you know you can't skip it, so you might as well make the best of it and get out there. Once your feet hit the pavement, you won't regret your decision! You need to trust yourself, and know that you are capable of anything you put your mind to! Don't give up on  yourself!
Who knew Katie Moon would become a running motivator? Gosh I love you running. I have been cooped up in my room studying for the past 4 days, and I am going a little stir crazy. I haven't even had that much time for running with 4 midterms, and 4 big assignments due. Once this Wednesday is over, running and I will continue our affair on a deeper level. I have only ran twice in the last 5 days... ughhhhh. Very ready for midterms to be over, and for me to say I did very well! Did I mention, that I only have 10 more months until graduation?! Well I do. Look out world!

Love and Get Going!
