Running isn’t my Hobby, it’s my Passion

 



The aim of this Blog is to hopefully paint a picture of the enjoyment I get from running off road. Running is my mindfulness and really adds to my well-being.

    Like your web site written in the sand! Had a beautiful 40 minutes of freedom running through the QECP, good for the ankles!

    Such a gorgeous photo! I also run because I just love it, although sometimes it takes a lot of effort to remember that! My first run back from injury I was like, ‘Really? This is something I enjoy?!’ But then of course it all kinda sunk into place 🙂

    Yes, that’s why we train like we do!! Your title, “running isn’t my hobby, it’s my passion” captures it all!! That’s what I think other people who aren’t athletes misinterpret about us. Because of this common bond that we have as athletes, we’ve created a website that brings together former and current athletes and provides a supportive and non-judgmental space for individuals to share their athletic triumphs and struggles with one another (See the forums page and members and events page). We’d love to hear an account of how running has influenced you (anonymously if you would like). Thank you for your consideration! Looking forward to hearing more on your blog! Margaret

    Thank you for sharing your passion! It reminds me when I got into spirituality and teaching. My passion became my job. Thank you!

    I need to dig deep inside my cupboard, dust off my running shoes, grit my teeth and start running again! Ive been thinking about it for a while and desperately need to shed the weight! Love the quote – “Your legs achieve what your mind believes”
