Yes, this sounds sooo familiar!

Who hasn’t thought this when they first started running or even just exercising!?!?!

When I first started working out I was careful to say “I worked out” or “I hit the gym” “I like fitness” and so on. I was scared people would say “HAHA – she “works out” …what does she do?..She isn’t super fit and super skinny/toned” When I first started running I wouldn’t say I was a runner because I was so slow….ummm NEWS FLASH – if you run you are a runner! Even if you just run 2/3 miles a day or if you run 13 miles a day you are runner! There are different levels of running but everybody is a runner! AND the more I run the faster I get so boom!  ha

This weekend when you go out on your run I want you to say to yourself you are a runner! Then when somebody ask you are you a runner? Ummm yes I am is how you should respond! AND this goes with hitting the gym or working out as well! 

Don’t be ashamed because your “new to it” or not “hard-core”! Just be yourself and do what you do! FYI – you are working out so you can say I work out and not feel weird about it! Just because you workout doesn’t mean you must have big muscles, a 6 pack, zero fat, or you can run a 5 minute mile! Working out and running is about being HEALTHY!!! Not about your size and shape!

  1. Yes! “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle
    If you run a good bit, your a runner. If you go to the gym often, you workout. If you eat healthy a good bit of the time, you are a healthy eater. Nice post!
