Why running is important to me…


Why I love running?

Well. I haven’t always been a runner… at one point I was actually 30kg overweight and living a very unhealthy lifestyle – mentally, physically and nutritionally.

I started running because it was the one thing in my life that I can control. It’s the one thing I know I can rely on and has gotten me out of some very unhealthy habits in life.

I run to feel alive, I run to find myself, I run because it makes me feel powerful, and I run because it makes me feel stronger.

Today like most days, I started my day with a 4am run and I do this because running in the morning sets you up for your day…

After a run in the morning, I feel more energetic and motivated to achieve our goals. I see my day with a more positive mindset.

Running (or working out) in the morning is one of the most self-rewarding things you can do for your body and mind.

Nowadays, I don’t go more than 1 day without getting out for a run or a light jog as it is great for my mental health too. Something that I learned quickly from plantar fasciitis last year when I had to transition to cycling and swimming as a temporary replacement. You can quickly go to a dark place if you lose your thing.

No matter what it is that you do, whether it be a walk, run, cycle, meditating or yoga and beyond, it’s so important to find YOUR thing(s). Your outlet – both physically and mentally that you like or love doing for life.

I’d love to hear what your thing is, comment below with what YOUR thing is and why and check out our other blogs.
