Recently I sat down and took a few pictures I’ve captured while running and created some more “homemade motivation.” This time it’s homemade motivation, trail-style, since I’ve got a lot of trail races coming up this spring!
The first photo comes from a trail run at Pandapas Pond. The quote is something I thought up myself that I think goes well with trail running 🙂
The below picture is one I snapped while running the Trail Nut 10K in Bedford this past spring. As usual, it was one of those times where I had no idea I’d actually captured a really good picture until I got home and loaded the photo onto my computer. The quote is from a book I’m currently reading called Continental Quotient, by Kristen Lodge.
I got a photo of this bridge while running trails in the Wolf Creek Day Use area of the Jefferson National Forest on my birthday this past July. The quote was inspired by a Tom Brokaw quote about running.
The below scene comes from the 2014 Conquer the Cove 25K trail race. Specifically, it is during a roughly 2 mile climb up a mountain from miles 8-10. The quote just fits this part of the race, and the race as a whole, perfectly. I came across the quote on several motivational posters on Pinterest, but I couldn’t find the source.
Finally, I had to end with some motivation from Dean Karnazes, of course. Photo taken on the Snake Root Trail at Pandapas Pond.
And I stopped there because five seemed like enough, and six seemed excessive.
Are you feeling motivated? 🙂
