There is a motivational quote that is constantly floating around social media, usually plastered over a picture of someone running, that say something like “There will come a time when I can no longer run. Today is not that day.” I often think of that quote and wonder to myself “will there ever come a time when I run out of things to say about running?” The answer might be yes, but luckily for this blog, today is not that day.
As you may know, I do write for other outlets besides this tiny url of mine. And occasionally I gather a few and share them in this series called “Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About Running*”. Incase you missed them, here are the first three installments of this series:
Again with the disclaimer: if you’ve arrived here from Pinterest, I’m sorry, for I am a horrible, horrible blogger who has brought you here under semi false pretenses. I’m going to commit an internet sin and make you scroll for your desired topic below, and click ONE MORE TIME (the horror!) to get to the actual article. I’ll run a few fartleks as penance. If you didn’t arrive here from pinterest, and instead are just a loyal blog reader…thank you. Only one click necessary for you.
Without further ado: here is everything (*well, some more things) you’ve ever wanted to know about running .
FOMO, or the Fear of Missing Out, is a term often thrown around jokingly in the endurance community. But FOMO can cause serious physical, emotional, and financial strain on an athlete if they let their fear of missing out get out of hand.
Almost everyone knows there is an association between stretching and exercise, but it seems no one quite understands when, why, or how to stretch…or if it even really needs to be done at all.
Chances are at some point in your long-distance training, you’re going to use the bathroom. For some runners, the thought of an emergency call of nature can evoke feelings of anxiety. Where do you go? What do you do?
Kids these days (I feel like an old lady even saying that phrase) are hopelessly glued to technology. And who can blame them? From the time they are babies we are putting flashing lights and touch screens in front of their face to both educate and entertain them. So how do we encourage our kids to love the outdoors in a plugged in world?
You love to run. Unfortunately, not everyone else does. Sometimes even those closest to you can be unsupportive. It is a hard situation to handle and accept, but there is something you can do.
Stay tuned for volume five, which will be available the next time I feel inspired and creative enough to make more pins. In the meantime, if you have any topics you’d like to see covered, either here or on healthyway.com, please feel free to comment below! Thanks for reading, pinning, and sharing!
