Motivation for your miles.

Let’s play a game….


I have a theory…won’t you help me test it? 

Let’s play a game.

My game might not be quite this much fun :)

My game might not be quite this much fun 🙂

My theory is this, no matter what topic or item you give me…I can relate it in some way to running.

Is this a good thing?  I’m not sure.  🙂

For example, this is the one that started my train of thought.

“It can be difficult to find quality employees.”  If I were hiring someone and I saw that they were a runner, and had been for awhile….I would be more likely to hire them for the job.  They would have the qualities I was looking for such as…a hard worker, goal setter, able to overcome obstacles, self motivated, etc.

All last night and this morning I have been thinking of random objects and relating them to running :/

Washing  Machine:  You should wash your running clothes soon after running.  Do not use fabric softener on your dry fit items.  Air drying is best.

Iron:  One of my favorite things about running clothes is that you do not have to iron ANYTHING!

Banana:  A staple at the finish lines for most running events that I have been part of.

Couch:  OF COURSE…Couch to 5k!

Checkbook:  You might think that running is a cheap sport, but it CAN get costly.  Running shoes, entry fees, travel expenses, gadgets, and the list goes on.  I have written many checks during these last few years, but it was worth every penny.  Honestly…all you really NEED is a GOOD PAIR of shoes, and water.

Ceramic Tile:  I’ve been known to lay on the cold, ceramic tile in my air conditioned house, after running outside in the sweltering hot Alabama sun.

So won’t you join in my “FUN”?  Comment a topic or item and lets see if my theory holds true!  I’m curious!

Running inspires me to live. It helped me remember what winning felt like during a season of loss. The Lord speaks to me most during the miles....because there I'm giving Him the time to do so. These are the things that motivate me to run. I hope they inspire you to live God's best for your life as well. Happy Running!

  1. PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer) : My brother (who died last year and is my inspiration for running) drank PBR because it was cheap, and then he wrote a silly song about it that became semi-famous, and now it’s the song that keeps me going when I feel like quitting.

  2. What a fun game! I would like to see what you can come up with for “race cars” and “popcorn” 🙂

  3. I think your blog is pretty great! I nominated you for a Liebster Award 🙂 Check it out

  4. Black Hole

    • That one is going to take me a minute…I have to look up what exactly what a “black hole” actually is. 🙂 I’ve heard the term, but don’t know what it really is.

  5. Definition of black hole (n)

    Bing Dictionary

    black hole

    1.object in space: an area in space with such a strong gravitational pull that no matter or energy can escape from it. where things get lost: a place or thing into which objects disappear and are not expected to be seen again

    I had this nice pair of earbuds, that are guaranteed to stay in your ears. I guess they ended up in that black hole where my other running sock was sucked into as well.

    Thanks for playing daddy 🙂
