Running out of excuses

-
I used to love a nice downpour of rain, because surely that prevented me to go out running?! But then I bought this waterproof jacket and I had to run, come rain or shine.

Oh well, at least I still had my monthly period to get me out of running. It was like a monthly 'Get out of jail for free' card. But then I discovered that on day three I cóuld run. Easily.

I kept trying though. 'I'm too tired,' 'It's too cold,' 'It's too hot,'I don't feel like it.' If there's an excuse out there, I tried it.

But to all these excuses I had this foolproof answer: 'What's half an hour of running if you know you're gonna feel great afterwards! Surely you can spend half an hour to feel good?'

Then I knew for sure: 'I've run out of excuses not to run.'

And I'm so glad I did.

  2. That's where my whole shut up and run thing came from. Excuses. It's easier to no over think it but to just head out the door!
