140: What Happened to My Running Motivation?

Uncategorized May 14, 2020

 Lack of motivation is a real issue that many runners are facing.  While it’s easy to simply say, choose to be motivated, it’s a little more complicated that just that.  We live in a world full of options and choices.  We are often bombarded with endless possibilities.  Choice creates a feeling of freedom.  In this current time period, the power of choice is becoming strikingly clear.  Today, we want to talk about how you have always had choice and how you can use that to highlight your power and bring the most joy to your running and life.  This power of choice can help bring us out of a motivational funk.
