A little motivation

So if you’ve been around a while, (and even if you haven’t) you’ll know I’ve struggled with motivation lately. And while it’s gotten better, I can honestly say I enjoy relaxing on my recliner after a long day at work WAY too much, HA! BUT…time for that all to end.

My husband and I watched “Brittney runs a marathon” this weekend on Amazon Prime, (check out a clip HERE) and it really resonated with me. I used to be that runner that went to “run club” and had “running friends” and I used to have such a sense of purpose while training for a race. I thought I had forgotten that feeling, but thankfully running truly is in my blood. And because of that, I asked my husband to run with me on Monday…to slow down and just run beside me to help keep me going….and he did just that!! I am no longer going to look back on what kind of runner I used to be, or what pace I used to be able to run; instead I will look forward which has been my mantra for nearly a decade. I will keep taking my Novorenew to keep my joints and muscles fresh and remind myself that while it’s ok to step back, it’s not ok to stop. Let the fun begin!!!

Speaking of fun, I was contacted by a company called www.funrunbox.com asking me to review their box. (I generously received a free box, in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own).

Here’s a little bit about the company and what they offer:

Beyond the content of the box, we feel one of our big differentiators is the monthly challenge; our subscribers love it, and it keeps them motivated
Our subscribers get access to an exclusive running community where they can share, motivate and get motivated
Our subscribers can get discount coupons for many of the items in the box, allowing them to purchase at below retail prices
Our subscribers also get access to exclusive content (training, motivation, tips, etc.)
Finally, our subscribers have access to members only sales

Here’s a snapshot of what I received (over $60.00 worth of items!!!):

This is such a fun concept/idea and I look forward to learning more about the company. If you use Welcome15 at checkout, you’ll save 15% off of your first box!!!

How do you stay motivated? What’s your favorite fuel for running? Are you a hot/cold weather runner?

Cheers!

  1. I loved that movie too, for many reasons. I’m not a runner, but can identify with it in other parts of my life. I don’t have to always go all in, it’s okay to move slow or dip my toe in, like my walks in the woods and by the water.

  2. Thanks for the Motivation!
    I realized the other day too that I am missing my tribe, my community. life has gotten in the way and I had to step away from my of my groups that motivated and pushed me. I need to find a way to get back connected.
    That run box looks fun!

  3. A little motivation will serve you well. I hope you are able to ignite your inner self to return to running for yourself, without the need to be where you were in the past. Rebuild your enthusiasm for running.

  4. I like the part where you say you are not going to look back to the type of runner you used to be but you are moving forward. At times that is all you gotta do. Move forward.

  5. That’s an amazing and different idea of motivation. For me self-motivation always worked as one for the good fuel. Life is also like a race and you need to keep moving.
    Thanks for sharing this post 🙂
