I have done this many times and the first time I can run again I know I will.
if this doesn’t make you feel alive, happy and grateful, i don’t know what will!
I love this…
Is there a fixed definition of being a yogi? What exactly does a yogi mean anyway? Find out if you fit the pre-requisites of being a yogi in this brand new post! <:
(pssst.. there aren’t any pre-requisites anyway! but still, take a look!)
I wish more people would realize this.
It’s the same in the running world: I have friends who finish their first race and proudly tell me about it. Then they brush off their accomplishments… “you’re a real runner, so my 5K must sound like nothing to you.” Actually, it sounds pretty amazing to me whether you’ve just run your first twenty minutes with walk breaks in between. It sounds amazing if you’ve run a mile or three point one or six point two or thirteen point one, or twenty six point two or more. If you run, you are a runner. Don’t think otherwise because someone has run further than you- that’s just silly. I may be a marathoner, but I was once a beginner huffing and puffing my way through a sixty second running interval, feeling like my lungs were going to explode from my chest.
If you run, you are a runner.
If you practice yoga, you are a yogi.
Why so many qualifications on everything we do? More supportive communities are needed. No one should ever feel sub par: whether they are a beginner or an expert. Everyone is welcome.
And I totally agree with that! Any sport is a sport so long as we do what we love and stay active! :>
"Number one is just to gain a passion for running. To love the morning, to love the trail, to love the pace on the track. And if some kid gets really good at it, that’s cool too." - Pat Tyson
That’s cool too.
"Run for the euphoria, the fitter body, the healthier life, the stronger legs, the easier staircases, the sound mind, the accomplishments, the failures, the easy runs, the hard runs, the fartleks, the LSDs, the 5k, the 8 mile mornings, the running buddies, the cheers, the water afterward, the pasta, the bread, and the running life. But most importantly, run for yourself. "
some helpful stick figure poses for all you runners out there!!!
