    You have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face!

    The amazing thing about running is that many runners may run the same road but no one runs the same journey.

    People often say motivation doesn’t last.
    But neither does bathing,
    That’s why they are both recommended daily!

    Sometimes you need to give up normal things your friends do and get what they they only dream off. Waking up early to run. Eating healthy. Working hard. It does pay off one way or another.

    My runspiration:

    When I was a teenager I competed in sport at a high level. We were trained to the teeth and it took up most of my life. I loved the sport and had a great time doing it, but now as an adult I really enjoy working out to get in touch with myself rather than beat my last time, get ripped, be the best, etc. When I go for a run now I like to admire the scenery, and feel inspired by nature. Or I like to get introspective and notice how I am feeling now and concentrate on the simple process of breathing, and rhythm. I guess my runspiration is to avoid getting caught up in the idea of what a great runner’s time is, or what the best running gear is, or the # of marathons I’ve competed in. I run because it feels right for me.

    November 2012, I received the call every mother dreads, “Your daughter collapsed in the street and is in hospital.” Especially when you live in Vancouver Canada and your daughter lives in Hiroshima Japan! At 29 years old, she had been a smoker and weighed 265 lbs. She had a pulmonary embolism and developed congestive heart failure. A few days into her course of treatment, she texted me “teach me some exercises I can do in bed.” Even though there was a possibility she wouldn’t survive, she got started before she could even sit up. Today she is taking medication and the thrombus is shrinking, but more importantly, she has lost about 90 lbs through healthy nutrition and running. Not only that, she has challenged her siblings and parents to a competition. Beginning January 6 (my 57th birthday) we are each recording our BMI. She is going to keep track of the percentage of reduction and declare a winner at the end of the competition. Because of her determination to change her life to save her life, she is my RUNSPIRATION!
