My biggest motivation is my family, hubby and the kids! Plus my loose fitting jeans! I don't want to gain weight back and I want to be healthy for my boys! I need to be able to run faster then them for a few more years.

The most motivating thing, hummm?
well, I view things daily in a way that motivates me so I'll put one that motivated me recently in a BIG way (I blogged about it in my recap of my last Ultra).

Deep into the ultra, I passed a couple of runners. They were headed back from a long out and back as I was headed in. I noticed the young woman, blond, fit, wearing pink trimmed Nike Dry fit shorts. She was at the time about the 5th female. I envied her position in the race.
After making it to the aid station and heading back, I passed her again. What? The out and back was miles long. How could that be? And I passed her. She and her partner had slowed and I was running hard. As I was leaving the aid station before heading back into the woods, I heard a female voice talking to someone. It was pink Nike Dry Fit. She was complaining to the volunteers as she entered the aid station. She was saying how she had gotten off course and that had cost her her place in the race. I had gone of course 3x at that point. All because I mande choices, no one made me go off course. The same was true for her. She simply went the wrong way. I decided right there that no matter how tired I got, I was not going to let it effect how I raced that day. I put a smile on my muddy tired face and I shared it with everyone who would give me a seconds time. I finished great and feeling great. I knew that I had encouraged people and helped fellow runners along the way.
That young lady's "bad" behavior was for me a very motivating situation to encounter. It reminded me that I don't need to run for a place or a time. I run because I love it, right turn, wrong turn, first place or last all with a smile on my face.

I know its tuesdays, but today on my first day of school I met one of my students who is severly handicaped and has a lot of problems. We have what is called a gold medal mile at our school that students try to achieve. This student told me today that their goal for the year is to be able to run the whole mile to recieve the award. She asked if I would help her practice and do it at recess and when we go outside for free time. Seeing how hard it will be for her to accomplish this has helped me set some goals that I want to try to accomplish too!

Alesha said...

You are on my blog roll although I don't actually get on my blog ever:) I had to make it for school.

The most motivating thing for me is when I have family/friends show up at my races. Mostly the marathons. That is such an emotional thing for me. Yes, I'm a total dork. And thanks for being two of those people.
