Mid-Week Motivation

I’m inspired and motivated by words and a collector of quotes. One of my recent favorites is by Kristin Armstrong, author of Mile Markers: The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run and at one time a distance runner and triathlete and now a professional road bicycle racer. 

The words are so true. The feelings at the end of a run ARE addicting. Never do I recall ending a run and feeling bad.

Check out my guest post at Mommy Run Fast, Menu Planning Tips and Benefits.

What are your favorite quotes? Have you ever finished a run, ride, walk or workout and felt bad afterwards? What feelings do you associate with physical fitness?
