36 Thoughts Every Girl Has When Running

"I love this. I hate this. I hate this. I hate this. I hate this. I LOVE this!"

1. OK, to be a runner, I've got to actually run.

2. I've been THINKING about running all week, so I'm actually going to do it.

3. That's what I need to do – outrun the sad, outrun the mad, the stress, the way-too-much-fun over the weekend... Get those endorphins kickin'!

4. OK, all laced up. Looking good, feeling good.

5. Start up Nike+. 6km here I come, LET'S DO THIS.

6. Daymn, these tights feel good. I should wear these more often.

7. Ahhh, I forgot how much I love running. This is great. I'm great. The world is great.

8. You know what, I'm going to start doing this more often. Three times a week. 

9. No, six times a week!

10. This song is amazing too. Such a tune.

11. Starting to feel it now. Reckon that must be at least halfway. 

12. 2km! IT'S ONLY BEEN 2km!

13. Feels like I've been running for ages already!

14. Why did I decide to go on a run today?

15. …because running is great and I love it and I'm definitely not regretting this decision.

16. 6km isn't that much. Two sets of 3km. You're practically halfway already.

Aaand just passed 2.5km.



20. OK, focus, you need to cross that road. 

21. Or maybe take a little breather.

22. It doesn't count as stopping if the little man's red.

Oh come on, OF COURSE the light would turn green juuuust as I get there. 

24. Screw it, I'm sprinting through the intersection.

25. Wow, that was pretty amazing. I'm amazing!

26. So glad I came out.

27. I feel fantastic. Must be that second wind everyone talks about.

28. Or it's just the fact I'm running downhill.

29. Nah, it's definitely the second wind.

30. OK, how far left? Only 1km!

31. I'm crushing this run. Maybe I should sign up for a half marathon?

That's 21km, which is really only 20, which is not that much more than this easy run. 

33. (Which I'm smashing.)

34. It's decided. I'm signing up.

35. Maybe I should run a bit further now to test my stamina?

36. Yeah, what's one more km? Let's do this!

We’re all beginners in the beginning, right? Whether it’s your first run ever, or you’re just getting back out there, everyone has to start somewhere.

Take Margot vs Lily for example, two sisters who make a bet to push themselves out of their comfort zone. Way out of their comfort zone. Get motivated with this new series from NikeWomen, and watch their Better For It journey unfold.
