Feeling Lifted

Feeling Lifted

I was just sitting in front of my tv! Minding my own business!  Just settled after a run and catching up on youtube videos.  Then all of a sudden I heard my name mentioned.  One of the ladies I follow for her own fitness journey Ebonique Amazon was just giving her update on a 3-day Juice cleanse she was doing.  She then went on to talk about starting a 30 day run streak – which she said she was inspired by me to start it!  She has been following my journey way back when I started my couch to 5k program at the end of 2013.

I was a little shocked and overcome!  My heart felt lifted! I had a big smile on my face.  It is lovely to hear the kind words., and what she had to say.  I enjoy my runs and I enjoy posting and sharing my progress to my fellow runners!  It is like a little diary, for me, capturing what I have done, where I have run, how I felt …  good or bad … and who I have met along the way.

To know that someone as far as the US has taken an interest in what I am doing and has been inspired by me, it is such a good feeling.  To know that you have touched someone else’s life, and helped in some way! Its got me feeling lifted!  It is also a great encouragement, to continue to keep posting everyday!  Someone else could be watching and I could help them too, in my own little way!

It is nice to be noticed 🙂

Who is your inspiration – running or otherwise?   Please let me know in the comments below!

    Great post. I’m motivated by my friends on Garmin, Strava and Nike plus. Plus vanity. I want to look good in clothes, and in my birthday suit,lol.
