Meanwhile, these rehab exercises are just plain boring! I'm trying to wrap my brain around "do something painful and monotonous...so you can work out again someday." But, I have to move past that, If I want to get better, right? RIGHT!!
Congratulations to Tracy (aka back.of.the.pack.runner) from our St. Paul Highland Moms on the Run location for winning July's #MOTRstrong Instagram contest! She wins two registrations for the Women Run the Cities 5k/10k/10mile race on Sunday, Sept. 24. Not only does she take some awesome photos, but she also shares some fantastic insights that we wanted to pass along to you.
Why do you run?
I run because I LIKE IT. I like the runner's high (hello endorphins!). I like being able to move (I spent the first 3/4 of my life as a couch potato). I like how I feel when I sprint up a hill. I like how I feel when I'm exhausted after a run. I like being out of breath and sweaty. I like putting one foot in front of the other.
