Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE quotes. I live by them. For some time I’ve subscribed to RunnersWorld.com “Daily Kick in the Butt” and receive inspirational running/life quotes in my inbox. Back in 2007, said source posted 101 Kicks in Butt - 101 tips for finding inspiration to run. I've completed the first two steps (1) Blogging (2) Mama, Get a New Pair of Shoes.
I could stand to follow two other tips:
ONE: EVERY MILE YOU RUN burns roughly 100 calories. Think of that next six-miler as two slices of pizza. Note from Cyn: The pizza I eat is usually a min. of 150 calories per slice so my next six-miler is more like 1.3 slices, or in the case of Giordano's deep dish cheese, prolly 0.3 slices.
TWO: GOOD-TO-GO PLAYLIST
"Don't Stop Me Now," Queen
"Break on Through," The Doors
"Gimme Shelter," Rolling Stones
"Come Together" the Beatles
"What Do You Do for Money Honey," AC/DC
This post wouldn't be complete without today's Daily Kick In the Butt:
I don't think you can become an outstanding runner unless you get a certain amount of enjoyment out of the suffering. You have to enjoy absorbing it, controlling it and—ultimately—overcoming it. ~Derek Clayton in The Masters of the Marathon
