Aspiring to Inspire

I am now a sweat pink ambassador as you can see from the upper left corner of my blog! :)

I love that we can connect on so many social networks and use these companies to inspire and affect other people's lives.

In just a few short months I have gained a good group of followers on here, Twitter and Facebook.

Not only do I try to inspire and encourage through these sites, I use them to motivate myself.

I read a few (or a ton of) blog posts each morning or night and I am continually motivated to get out and be fit, sweat, feel the runners high, and be overcome with an excellent feeling of exhaustion.

I never feel more in the now than while I'm running, and I never feel more at my best than right after my run has ended.

In addition to being inspired to keep putting one foot in front of the other I have been shown that I need to branch out and cross-train to keep this body fit.

I have found a love for weight training and yoga, and I hope to be getting back into cycling soon.

(I think this is my very first post sans photos.)

Tell me what you have found a love for fitness-wise.

When do you feel your best?

  3. Yay! Congratulations! I have been a runner for a LONG time and I've never found any other sport/workout that will challenge me the way running does. This is not really fitness related, but health related, I have cut WAY back on my sugar intake and have found that I have SO much more energy so now my love is finding recipes that are sweet but don't contain so much SUGAR, only more natural sweeteners from fruits and such :)

    1. That is great. I have been working on the sugar thing too. But I still crave candy once in a while. But as for my everyday habits with adding sugar I have tried to switch to honey, agave nectar, pure maple syrup and using stevia. The stevia is definitely an acquired taste though.

  4. Congratulations, fellow SPA sister!

    This community is amazing.

    Fitness wise, I am really glad to have found running. I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I do. I feel my best after a consistent period of good runs.

    1. I agree. I'm so glad that I found all these fitness blogs at the beginning of this year. It has really pushed me to run and race more.

  6. I think the most amazing thing for me has been that I have fallen in love with myself through running. I am not as hard on myself because I know how hard I am pushing and working.
    I love my big strong thighs and my beaten and worn out feet because they have carried me so far.
    The running bloggers community has been a place that I look forward to visiting every day. So many inspiring and fun people, and you're one of them!! :)

  7. I love the running community for sure! It makes me want to stick with running, even when I hate it lol! And I feel my best when I've accomplished something I didn't think I could do, particularly the longer runs I've been attempting lately. But any time I run and don't feel like I'm dying is good lol
