Wednesday Word: Giving


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.

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.

So yes, running has given me so much that I believe it is important to GIVE back.

There are many different ways that you can do this:

  • blogging
  • 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?
