Motivation Monday

Standard

I came across today’s motivation picture on the Facebook page for Breakaway Running, a local running store here in Memphis.  I thought that the post was very informative and really was a no-brainer to share on the blog.  It displays some of the health benefits running can produce for you.  The picture is from NordicTrack, and I am not certain if this was used for one of their ads or not.

This is some great information to think about next time you opt to ignore your running plan (like I did this weekend, more on this later).  This will be very helpful next time someone asks me why I run.  In addition to telling people that I enjoy running, throwing some science at them will undoubtedly help.

Platinum Sombrero 5K Sponsor #16

Standard

I was out of town over the weekend, so I was not able to post this, but there is a new sponsor for the Platinum Sombrero 5K (register here).  The sixteenth race sponsor is Nathan Performance Gear.  The company specializes in a variety of running items, including hydration items, safety items, and even Lock Laces.  They have agreed to donated one Quick Draw Plus water bottle that will be raffled off to one lucky race participant.  The Quick Draw Plus is a handheld water bottle with a pouch to keep various race items.  You can find and like them on Facebook here.
