Motivational changes

-
I started running twelve years ago.

And during that time my motivation to run has changed. My motivation is on the move all the time.

When I first started running I did so because I was looking for some me-time. Some peace and quiet, away from my busy family life with 4 little kids. I still like that motivation. I think it's one of the best reasons to run.

Where did the me-time go?


But ever since I started to do the school run, running I've lost something. Running no longer helps me gather my thoughts or find myself. It's become time for the children. And I miss the me time running used to offer me.

But the practicality of running alongside the kids, while they ride their bikes to school is just too good to pass up.

And I know it's only one more year.

Then running will become me time again.

Have your reasons to run changed over time?

  1. I am not a runner. I would never make it the first mile. I exercise, but I have to do something I think is fun, like dance or hike. Thank you for linking up to Tips and Tricks.

  2. I love that you guys all run together. I don't have little ones, but I am hoping running evolves into family time like this one day!
