Take It and Run Thursday: Running Transitions

Take_it_and_run_thursday 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 ....   Running Through Transitions.  There is a great saying that goes something like, "It's not the change that kills you, it is the transition."  With daylight savings time around the corner for most us, as well as the looming change in season or temperatures, precipation we thought it might be useful to share tips on how you survive and thrive through transitions.  And you don't need to limit your remarks to weather changes, you can also include transitions from training for a race to running for run, changing jobs, changes in family situations, changes in physical fitness or weight, transitions in goals, aging, changes in gear, running routes, moving, etc, etc....the list of changes we runners go through is endless.  How do you keep running through changes and transitions.

Just fill in your name/title of your post and your URL below.

Next weeks theme is ....  Running Green.  This week's topic is brought to you by julianne.  She dropped us a note and suggested, "How about the theme of "Running Green"? How runners can do their part in leaving the Earth better than we found it by recycling, using alternative energy sources, doing something natual & organic, etc."   Share your ideas of how you do your part to making your running green - even when you are starting to run in the white stuff.

Go mommy, go!

Transitions: it's the stuff life is made of.


Yay for TIaRT


I had a really tough time with this one! It was almost too much to think about. Could've gone so many different directions,... especially thinking about all the transitions I've made AND the ones yet to come... eek.

This one was cathartic and timely. Best of all, I got to organize my thoughts while running. Thanks for suggesting the topic.


Yay for TIaRT! I really look forward to Thursdays! :-) And so excited that running green theme got chosen for next week!


It's great to have a site to share stories, ideas, best practices - yay for TIaRT!


This is my first TIART entry and it's really resonating - I'm pregnant with twins, moving, and a runner. The runner part is the one helping alleviate the stresses of "transitions" and reflect on the exciting parts.
