Back when I was training for my first half marathon I struggled quite a bit to find the motivation to do my long runs and harder workouts. Mostly because a lot of that stuff was relatively new to me and my body was still adjusting to the harder work load. So to amp myself up before these harder workouts that were all new and unfamiliar to me, I’d get onto YouTube and search for “running motivation” and watch a few of the videos that came up. That usually got me excited to get out on the road and made the first step of just getting out of the door that much easier.
I actually haven’t done that in a while though, but getting up at 5 am to get a run in before it gets too hot is kinda draining a lot of the fun out of running for me. So early this morning while I was getting ready to do my run, I thought I’d go revisit some of my favorites and then share them with you guys!
1. Best Running Motivation
This one is actually my all time favorite! All of those quotes and the epic music gets me every time! I like it so much that I ripped the audio from the video and uploaded it to my phone so that I can listen to it while I run haha.
2. Running Motivation: Rise and Shine
“Welcome to the grind.”
3. Running Motivation
“Anything is possible as long as you want it, you work for it, it doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks.”
4. Best Running Motivational Video – Motivation To Run
“You must now be focused on your why. You must be focused on your dreams. You must be focused on your goals.”
5. Motivational Running – Our Deepest Fear
“It aint about how hard your hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.”
