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 GIVING.
Tis the season.
Since this is a running blog, I’ll talk about what RUNNING has GIVEN to me.
- bragging rights
- good health
- muscular legs (slightly LOL)
- ugly feet
- excuse to eat more
- free food
- time to think
- stress reliever
- visits to interesting places
- alone time
- pretty scenery
- many new friends
- reasons to blog
- mentoring opportunities
- opportunities to support charities
- volunteer opportunities
If you look at the list above, you’ll notice most of the things that RUNNING has GIVEN are good things – things that has enriched my life.
There are many different ways that you can do this:
- mentoring a new runner
- volunteering at a race
- raising money for a charity
- giving advice to other runners
- running with a slower running friend
- coaching a runner
- running a race along side another runner
- donating shirts and shoes
Happy Running! What has running GIVEN to you? How have you GIVEN back?
Oh good, I actually do do a couple of those things. 🙂
Of course you do.

I sometimes feel like a slacker in the give back department, but that’s partially because I’m running Judy’s home for wayward animals . . .
That is me too Judy lol I am the cat rescue lady!

Running is a gift for sure!
Yes it is.
Running has certainly given me all that you mentioned above 😉 I’m glad it has also afforded me the numerous opportunities to also give back as well. Life is good 😉
I love your list!
Although I give back in other ways on life, I slack in the running department. I need to volunteer this year!
I hope to volunteer at a race. They wouldn’t be possible without the volunteers.
I love both of your lists, and couldn’t help but smile when you mentioned that running has given you DOMS and ugly feet. Me, too!
Thanks for linking up!
