Take It and Run Thursday: Basics of Running

Take_it_and_run_thursday_2 Welcome to our first 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 .... the Basics of Running.   

Talk about the tried and true truths and lessons about running that you have learned over many a mile.  Look back at today's post, your last few posts or last year of posts, and drop off your link to share with other runners.   It can be a few phrases or a whole laundry list - your choice.

Here's how to do it:  At the end of this post is a cool little program (Mr Linky) that allows you to automatically post your link within this post.  You don't have to wait for me to finish eating my cookies and dusting the crumbs off the keyboard to get some link love.   You can link up right now!  It's quick and easy!   Just post your name and the title/topic of your post in the first spot and the link to your post in the second spot.  That's it!   And the best part....when the day is done, all of us will have a list of posts on this topic that we can learn from.   

And a little incentive:  Tom and I will select two of the links to feature this week and the owners will receive a pair of DryMax socks, compliments of Gus at DryMax.  If you haven't tried these little pieces of sock heaven, you are in for a huge treat!

Drop off a comment and let me know what you think of this experiment.  If you want to play...

Next Week's Theme is ... Motivation.   Inspired by Rob's recent post about motivation.  What gets you motivated?  Takes away your motivation?  What do you tell yourself?  How do you keep going when it is cold, dark, windy, cold....or hot, humid, windy, hilly?

January 25th update:

And the winners of a pair of completely-awesome-will-make-you-want-to-run-longer SOCKS are....

  • Nat - for her rousing, deeply spiritual running version of the 10 commandments.   You gotta' love commandments that start with Thou Shall Not Be a Pansy-Ass.....
  • Heidi - for her list of 9 things to remember as a runner

Thank you to DryMax Socks for sharing the socks with the Lounge!
