INSPIRE AND BE INSPIRED We all have that ONE friend who is just awesome at everything they do! They achieve loads and their life seems to be a whirlwind. Well, lucky me, I seem to have MANY friends who fit this criteria. Inspiring on MANY levels, and for MANY different reasons.
Yesterday we went to cheer two of our friends on as they made their way around the Edinburgh Marathon. Now I am a newcomer when it comes to running, having only achieved 10K in distance thus far.... well, these 2 friends inspire me LOTS! As well as giving me so much encouragement and support along the way!
Be an encourager. Be the one who makes your friends feel like things are possible. Likewise, this goes for yourself. Find it within yourself to believe! The power of positivity really does help get stuff done!
MY FIRST 10K COMPLETED!!
Can't believe I was able to keep running the whole way round the 6 mile course, there were so many points where I thought I needed to stop but with the crowd and fellow runners I was able to keep going. I ran as part of the 'Purple Wave' which was set up for the university students and staff who wanted to run all together, creating a wave of purple colour!
Running around manchester was awesome and seeing all the love and support from everyone there made me so proud to be there taking part!
So points to remember for next time:
•these shorts DO NOT WORK FOR ME
•please eat the night before and a few hours before race. I had a breakfast but then the race wasn't until 2PM!
•I run better when my hair is plaited, I know sounds strange but having it down in a pony tail just winds me up and irritates my neck
•instead of music, chat to someone. I've never really ran with music so not sure why I did yesterday!
But I'm super happy with my result and know I can easily improve on my time, fitness and health!! Well done to anyone else who was there #manchester#10krunner#running#run#running#runningevent#student#university#mentalhealth#fitness#health#bodypositivity#bodypositive#bodydysmorphia#studentrunners#studentrunning#thisgirlcan#dedication
I had 2 firsts yesterday! Ran my first 10KM race AND wore my first pair of CANADIAN MADE Silver Icing exclusive leggings!! These leggings were fantastic when made in the USA, but I'm finding the Canadian made even more AMAZING! I did NOT once have to fidget/adjust/hike up/pull down/or worry about the runner behind me (going up a killer hill) seeing my bright orange polkadot underwear! These are currently sold out, but we currently have a new pattern on Preorder. "The Eh Team Crops" are inspired and will be the perfect leggings to wear on Canada Day...and all year round! 8 way stretch is amazing!! Check it out here:
