Take It And Run Thursday: 13-Words or Less

This week, for Take it and Run Thursday, we have been asked to share the best lesson we've learned about running in THIRTEEN words or less. Since this imposed limit is obviously kind of overwhelming for a girl who happens to suffer from blogorrhea (have I cheated already?), I've gone ahead and stolen my lesson. It's something I once saw on the window of the Michigan Avenue Niketown store in Chicago (I was not running at the time, but I was doing some pretty intense shopping; shopping counts as "training," right?) I try to remind myself of it on a daily basis, when the going gets tough and the tough (me) is forced to work until at least 11:00 p.m. for three weeks straight:

"Somewhere, someone busier than you is training right now." (or something like that)

Haha, look! Still Thirteen words . . . even with the added parentheses (and yes, I did, in fact, have to count the words out like 54 times just to make sure I don't look dumb!)

Good reminder! Work does get so in the way of a good run most days.

Wow, I really like that. Am going to have to write it down somewhere...maybe on a piece of paper in front of my treadmill?!

That's a good one, Irish! Will remember that next time I'm tempted to skip a workout after working OT

I like it... It is so easy to be lazy and skip a workout until you realize how good you have it. Running in 20 degree Iowa snowy weather certainly beats running in Alaska or International Falls, MN at that same time. Very good quote!

That's so true. And they usually train more that I do! : )

I'm inspired by stories for folks who are crazy busy yet still get their run in.
