Whether you’ve just run a race and are looking for your next challenge, or haven’t raced in a while but would like to have a goal to work towards, ask yourself these 3 questions.
This week’s guest blogger is the fabulous Richard, or also known on Instagram as frenglish_guy
I’ve mentioned before that I love doing these guest blogs because, well, in a nut shell, I am nosey. I love finding out how other people got into running, and what motivates them to get out there time and time again to crush their goals. Not just that, but I like discovering more about them – stuff that you may miss from a social media post etc. Let me introduce you to Saskia, who is this week’s guest blogger. She is a runner and has a fabulous collection of photos on her Instagram page which you should definitely check out. The discovery I made recently about Saskia is we live both live in Victoria, BC! I love how social media opens up the entire world to you, but it’s also brilliant when you come across someone that is close to home; who knows, I may have even run past her at some point.
Seawheeze is a half-marathon race around Vancouver, Canada and is organized by Lululemon. I will write another blog about all the merch and funtivites that come along with doing this race, but today is all about the 2018 race recap.
How is it almost the end of August already? This summer has whizzed by! The temperatures seem to be cooling down a little which I am SO thankful for. I forget each year how horrid it is to train for a half/full during the hot summer months.
This week’s guest blog is the fabulous Alexis and Terran from Parks and Perspiration. You have got to check these guys out! Not only are they serious #couplegoals, but they are raising money by running 250km around New Zealand in support of the National Parks Foundation. You can find them on Instagram and also on their website.
This guest blog of ‘Why do you run?’ is brought to you by Kim from LeatherandWeather. Find out all about how Kim got started running and what her 2020 running goal is.
Here are some of the strategies I use when all I want to do is give up. If you have any others you use, please let me know.
SMILE – I find, no matter how miserable you are feeling, if you smile it can really help trick your brain into thinking that all is good.
You know how you are always told not to talk to strangers? Strangers mean danger, right? Well this week’s blog is from my buddy, Kelly. We haven’t been friends for all that long; originally I stalked her Instagram after seeing she had run the same race as me in 2016. We had a lot of similarities; did similar things; took part in the same races; went to the same locations months apart; almost went to the same conference…..it felt like the universe was pushing us together. I’d never met someone from the internet in person; I was convinced she was going to murder me….turns out, she thought the same about me! All good friendships start with the fear of murder, right? Anyways, Kelly is incredible; she has been working her butt off crushing distances and PBs. Here’s why she runs – enjoy!
