Run. Go for it! No excuses, put on your kicks and get moving!

The problem in saying “easier said than done”, is that you're saying in the first place. In doing so you are allowing yourself to not succeed. You are being your own roadblock, and that is the only reason you won’t go for it.

The first 10 mins. of a run is down right hard. But once you get passed that first few minutes, your mind finally shuts up and your body is moving! The struggle is no longer something that holds you from the run, its actually what feeds you once you are in motion. It’s getting to that point that’s hard, not the actually activity. Mind over matter. If everyone would understand that, and trust it we would be a much healthier society.

Shutting up your brain is the hardest part to the beginning of any workout. Your mind will tell you a million reasons not to workout. Why you shouldn’t run, excuses that in reality have no bearing on what the run is about. Let your mind talk while you get on those new Nike running pants you bought. And those amazing Nike Free kicks that feel like clouds. Because once you step on to the pavement or treadmill (whichever your choose) your mind will taper off. And 10 minutes into the run, its completely quiet. The run takes over your body. Clears your mind. All the sudden you feel your heart working for you. Hear the rhythm of your breath and your feet together rooting for you to keep pace. And it’s in that moment, you realize all the reasons why you should be doing this run every single day. The first 10 minuets suck wind, but that last 10 minutes are invigorating.

Run. GO! Your mind needs the break.
