Take It and Run Thursday: Look Back, Look Ahead

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 ....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!

Next weeks theme is .... Your Six Word Running Memoir.  Completely inspired by a recent post by PigTails Flying, this one will give your mind something to chew on for all your runs over the next week.   Write your running memoir in exactly six words.   PigTails is so good at this that she challenged others to write 6 word race reports (wouldn't our family/friends love that) and even did a few for elite runners.   So if you need inspiration, stop over and check out her post.   On the post, she included this video of Six Word Memoirs from others - it will get you thinking.

My running goal has been super simple - just go jogging everyday. It's something that has actually worked.

It's kind of my idiot proof training plan, but I realized I need to start where I can.


I just happened to be in-sync with the Loungers today. Great posts all!



great topic this week! It really got me thinking. I am looking forward to reading all the posts.
