For a little while on Monday I watched the finish line camera from the Boston Marathon and I was reminded of how anyone can be a runner.
Runners come in all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities.
In a race like Boston everyone is watching and waiting to see who will break the tape, but the race at the front is not the only race that is going on. Every single runner is running a race against themselves. Each and every race is a chance to learn something, to better yourself in some way.
Here are some of my favorites pictures that exemplify what runners are.
Dedicated: Michele. This was one of the very first blogs I started following and have been following ever since!!! I am SO proud of this girl!!!
They show courage even in the face of heartbreak:
Sometimes things don’t turn out the way we expect, but it takes heart and courage to keep at it! I know Angela will come back strong!!!! Wishing you a speedy recovery!
Good sports, caring, and just plain amazing: Meb
Hard Workers & Motivators: Jen. I love her blog. She is such a hard worked and she is always motivating others. She always seems to be running with a group and I am sure she is an inspiration to them all. She also PRed and got a BQ on Monday!
Every single one of these runners is inspiring for so many reasons!
I was going to do a training re-cap today, but I just really wanted to share some of these photos and amazing accomplishments!!!
Did you run Boston?
If yes I hope you have a speedy recovery 🙂
