Runner's dialogue

I suppose every runner knows it: this inner dialogue, where a little voice whispers: 'Why don't you just stop! You're hot and tired, why should you keep running?! It would be sooo much easier to just sit down.'
But then there's this other voice inside of you that insists you can do it. 'Yes you cán run another mile! You can do it!'

This Nike commercial is a beautiful portrayal of the inner struggle of runners and the way running can give you a sense of renewal. A sense of overcoming yourself!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

That was great. It's funny because whenever I go out for long runs I write Nike commercials in my head which I get to star in, of course, running much faster than I do in real time! Just found your blog today- I'll be back!

That's a great ad! Reminds me of the conversations I have with myself every morning before I get out of bed.

I have been having these conversations with myself A LOT lately. I think I am having a serious mental block!

The inner dialogue is what makes long runs interesting.

That made me cry.

Hi. My name's Alissa and I'm pretty new at running, and blogging about running. If it doesn't creep you out, I'll follow you. Thanks.

Wow. That was crazy. I think I got a little choked up and it made me want to run again!
