FFF: 5 Things That Motivate Me

1.Staying Healthy

I really believe that running outside 4x a week (so matter what) has kept all those sicknesses (COVID, RSV, Flu, Cold, etc.) away!

-7 with the wind chill… I survived!

2. My Friends

As often as possible, I try enlist the company of a friend or two on my runs.  Running alone is no fun!! And you cannot procrastinate if someone is waiting for you!!


I admit it.  Food is my reward after any hike, run or race.


I enjoy racing.  But if I have a race on my schedule, I will NOT skip a run or cut short a long run.  I want to run well in a race but more importantly, I want to remain injury-fee.

I post 3x a week. If I don’t run, I feel like a phony since I schedule my upcoming runs or races on Sunday’s blog post and then recap them the Sunday after.

Happy Running! So what motivates YOU? Please share.

  1. Yes, I agree blogging is a motivator! It definitely motivates me to try different routes or sign up for a race, because I feel like the blog gets too boring otherwise. And yes, for sure- running keeps us healthy! Very important, especially nowadays.
