Running with Pump

Boston or Bust...

132 notes &

I do a lot more thinking when I run without music.
Today’s thoughts:
One hour of Netflix per night. After that, TV off.
No ice cream until after the marathon. Sherbet/Froyo only on days I run 10+ miles.
I need to get past some body image issues. Running shirtless means no band aids, less laundry and no shirt sticking to me and weighing me down. I ran my third mile this morning without a shirt and wasn’t disgusted with myself. I’m calling that a win.
I’m still going to drink every now and then. I just need to keep the ultimate goal in mind when doing so. 
I realize this all sounds kind of ridiculous, but I don’t want to look back on these upcoming five months with regret. No matter what, I’m not going to regret giving this training everything I’ve got. If I don’t BQ, then so be it. I’ll have tried. 
Anyway, good morning and have a kick ass day.

  4. seechrisrun said: All good goals. I’m also hesitant to run shirtless. I only do it if I’m running really, really early in the morning.

  7. whitneyrunson said: I feel you on all of the above. Netflix is so addicting and I am still working on getting used to running in just a sports bra. But you’re right- it’s less laundry!
  8. chrystimoreorless said: If any guy can run shirtless with nothing to worry about, it’s you. Besides, you’re too fast for anyone to notice imperfections. :-)
