One of the things I like best about running is that no matter how fast or far you go you can never loose. Of course running is a competitive sport too but no matter what you do you do something.
You can win a real race or one against the clock, your running buddy or yourself – whatever you come up with, really. There are many days where you will not run to actually win anything really but you gain things: experience, for example, speed, endurance or strength, too.
What I am trying to say is that: even if you don`t win a medal or an award you don`t loose. They say that when you run and even if you are the slowest runner with the least endurance you still lap everyone who is sitting around at home on their couch.
If you are in need of a little motivation think of this concept: you might not be winning but you are definitely not loosing. Often times you gain a lot!
Finally, Erika, whom I think of as another inspirational blogger, left me with this quote today that I had to share because it fits the topic: Losers make excuses, winners get shit done. – Marie Forleo
These are just two pictures from my morning runs around Barceloneta beach here in Barcelona.
