So let’s keep it real…some days are just days when you’d rather curl up on your couch (or stay in your warm bed) than get up and hit the ground running. But we all know those days don’t make champions…am I right? So here are 4 reasons to run when you have a case of the IDGAFs.
1. More than likely you will feel better once you get out there. Whether it’s short or long, you are never going to regret putting in those miles. Some days I tell myself that I am just going to go out for 3 and 4 miles and usually after that my body is all warmed up and I’ll want to do just a little bit more. It’s all about putting one foot in front of the other.
2. Because somewhere out there, someone busier than you is out running. Whether it is a high powered business man at 4:30 in the morning before a big meeting or a busy mama running around with children in tow. If they can do it, you certainly can get your ass up and hop to it.
3. To get a jolt of feel good endorphins. My favorite drug.
4. To remember why you started this journey of running in the first place. Which reminds me of one of my favorite quotes. “Run often and run long, but never outrun your joy of running”.
What are some reasons you are going to get out and get your RUN on today?
