What gets you out the door for a run?
100% commitment. 99% is hard, 100% is easy. It’s non-negotiable. — Mike Lawrence
A friend waiting for me! — Tracy Jenks
Blue skies and warm temps make it very inviting…. — Tom Toale
Calm, non-mommy time! — Christine Vassen
Running buddies — Lisa Shade
A bear in the house — Corey B. (my nephew…who is a non-runner…and a bit of a wiseass
My husband! — Bethany Kelley
For me, particularly in winter when my motivation wanes, the most important piece of running gear is a running friend—or a whole pack of them—waiting for me. Misery loves company on these cold, dark winter days.
I also know for a fact that I never, ever regret a run and it’s almost never as bad outside as it seems. Once you get going…you don’t even notice the weather, the wind, that ache in your knee, etc.
