Behavior of the Week
“Think 1 Stride at a Time” Sometimes when I am not running but still have to go running for the day, I begin to dread the run. Then after the run, I am psyched that I went and it actually went well. My point is that even though you might feel tired or unmotivated, that once you get going you will enjoy the run, being outside and the work that you accomplished. Each individual step will move you outside and move you forward. Do not hesitate to keep moving one stride at a time.
