Last night on my run I was reflecting on running and my experiences with it, positive and negative. I thought it might be a good series to start on my blog.
When I first started my blog, running was a huge topic for me as it was a really big part of my life. I was in the midst of training for races, including a half marathon. I was at my peak level of fitness and honestly the happiest I had ever been in running.
Somehow running became more of a chore to me, so a break was necessary to get my mind in a better place with running. Post break, I love running again and I try to incorporate it into my life as much as I can. It just doesn’t run my life anymore.
As I begin training for my next endeavors and continuing to enjoy my running journey, I thought occasional posts about various running experiences and moments in my life could be fun, motivating for me, and maybe give insight to anyone else who runs or wants to get into running. I’m not saying I’m an expert, but I do have decent experience and have learned a lot from my coaches, teammates, nutritionists, trainers, etc. over the years.
These are some of the topics I would like to dive into more!
1. How I got into running
2. My first races (4th and 5th grade lol)
3. High school running
4. Fun runs
5. Running camps
6. Nutrition and running
7. Injuries from running
8. 5ks and 10ks
9. Running with a nonprofit
10. Transition to running in college
11. Half marathon experiences
12. Breaks from running
13. How my runs are different in Chicago
14. Key learnings from running
Hopefully some of these topics will be interesting to all of you! Definitely share any running stories or experiences in the comments!
