Take It and Run Thursday: The Tough Stuff

Take_it_and_run_thursday_2 Welcome to Take It and Run Thursday!  It's our way to bring together the knowledge of all of us ordinary runners.  It's the virtual equivalent to putting our virtual heads together.  Even though many of us aren't elite athletes, coaches or authors, it doesn't mean that we haven't earned a well deserved PhD in running.   Whether you are starting out, have 50 years of running under your belt or somewhere in between - all of us have lessons learned that make us wiser and better runners.  

Today's theme is .... Overcoming the Tough Stuff.   However you define "tough", we all have parts of it in our running.  For some it is hills, humidity, heat, hell wind.  For others it is the middle of a long run or even others speedwork.   Tell the Lounge about the "tough" stuff in your running and how you overcome it.  Just enter your name and title and then the link to the URL in the space below.

Special bonus:  Everyone sharing personal experiences or suggestions to "Tough Stuff" is eligible to win a copy of the book, The Complete Book of Beginning Running, by Amby Burfoot, Executive Editor of Runners’ World magazine - autographed by the author.  Plus, we have some Runners’ Lounge t-shirts to give away.

Next weeks theme is .... Look Back, Look Ahead.  With over half the year behind us but about half ahead of us, it's a great time to look back at the goals we set for yourselves in the middle of winter and check in with our progress.   Are your goals still right for you this year?  Anything you would change?  What have you accomplished?  What have you learned along the way?  Use this chance to celebrate, to share what you have learned or simply check in with yourself.   Share your "a-ha's" with us!

My tough stuff isn't the running part- it's the not running part. I feel like I've been injured forever and constantly icing after every run (or not running at all) is the biggest emotional toll.

You can see my whining from Monday on my blog : )


I just discovered this site and I am looking forward to learning from it. I only started running 2 months ago with a running group and did my first 5K race last weekend but I am already addicted to running!


Your posts today are fantastic! Very inspirational to me!


The post this week are all so terrifically wonderful. Great topic and great bloggers. :)

Thank you everyone.


This was a perfectly timed topic and I was happy to pick up some really good tips and motivation!


Amy and Tom - Great topic this week. I loved reading what everyone had to say. Thanks for continuing to be great and encouraging moderators! Keep up the great work.
