Wedneday Word: Tenacious

Deb Runs

Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.

This week’s Word is TENACIOUS.

What is “Tenacious?”

According to the dictionary:

not readily relinquishing a position, principle, or course of action; determined.

In other words: persevering, persistent, determined, dogged, strong-willed, tireless,indefatigable, resolute, patient, unflagging, staunch, steadfast, untiring,unwavering, unswerving, unshakable, unyielding, insistent; stubborn,intransigent, obstinate, obdurate, stiff-necked; rock-ribbed; pertinacious

Isn’t every runner tenacious?

  1. When my husband suggested the word tenacious, I thought, “Good word.” It wasn’t until I started writing my post that I realized that it’s a perfect word for runners, and describes so many of us!

    Thanks for linking up!
