Call yourself a runner?

I love to run, it is my passion. I have loved running since the first ever run in training for the Race for Life in 2005. At that point I thought 'I will never be able to run'. Now I can't stop! So why do we run? Running wakes me up and starts my day off or winds me down from a difficult day. It makes me feel alive, and even if I am tired and don't feel like getting out of the door I am always glad I did. So is it the fact that I run races that makes me a runner? Or that I sometimes run with a club? No I think it is the fact that I get out there and do it, come rain or shine and the fact that I enjoy and choose to do it that makes me a runner. It does not matter how fast you run, how far or how often. I don't like the word 'jogger'. You either run or you don't. You are runner from the first time you lace up your running shoes.

Baby its cold outside….Cold weather running

The temperature has dropped, the nights are drawing in and some days it just feels too hard to get your warm body out of the door. We all need a bit of motivational advice sometimes but wintertime is the time when we may need it the most. There is always an excuse not to go for a run, too tired, not enough time, its too cold outside, its raining, the list goes on. But almost always there is a way to get round the excuse, where there's a will there's a way! A lack of motivation could be down to over training, your body has just had enough. If this is the case you need to listen to your body, maybe not if it says lie on the sofa for a week and eat chocolate biscuits, but if you are training a lot and need a day or two off, then take them. Your body will really thank you for it. If however you just need a little encouragement to get back on the road, read on. The hardest bit of a run is quite often getting your trainers on....
