Blog Series: Keep Moving

How was your weekend? We had a lovely Saturday evening dinner with our friends, followed by a late afternoon run over the hill with my friend Alisyn on Sunday. We also got a treat from Matthew, he woke up at 9.00 am on Sunday!! That’s sweeter than the chocolate dessert we had on Saturday!

I’m kicking off the week with some motivation, my 3rd motivation source to keep on running: Watching other people run. One afternoon 2 months ago I was outside with Matthew pushing him on the swing when I saw two guys run past my place. As soon as I saw them, the first thought that came to mind was “hey, I’m going out too!” Turns out that I’ve lost track of time and that was exactly what I needed to see to get me on the road. And so I did.

When you’re a runner, there’s something about seeing other people running that immediately clicks to you. I somewhat compare it to seeing a newly mom, you instantly relate to them, feeling their joy and pain (wink!) at the same time. Well, same is with running, I really get inspired when I see other runners.
