My Running Motivation Contribution

Hi

Happy Thursday! I was asked to contribute a few tips for running motivation from the folks over at fittousBest-Tips-to-Maintain-Running-Motivation

You can read my tips and tips from 42 other bloggers over here. There are definitely some common themes! Hope you find it helpful. :)

In other news my latest yoga progress—after almost 3 months—I can now hold a wheel pose.

I never thought I'd be able to do this

And in doggie paddle news i’m up to 24 laps!

Honestly....How can this view not affect your mindset

I’m just going to enjoy challenging myself to adding doggie paddle laps and trying to conquer yoga poses that seem so hard for me. Half moon: you’re next!

I’ve been enjoying picking fresh veggies in my dad’s garden. He’s got string beans growing up the corn stalks.

  1. Great post! Duncan and Ella are sooo cute – I can’t wait to get a dog.

    I love both string beans and corn – especially corn in the summertime :)

    Have a great rest of your Friday!
