Four years ago when I started running, my mom and husband really motivated to hit the pavement! I was entering my last year of graduate school, had picked up a few pounds (okay more than a few!), and I needed to do something to get my health and fitness back on the right track.
It was their encouragement that helped me complete my first 10K in March 2010. My husband even ran the entire thing right beside me.
No matter if its your husband, your child, your sister or your friend, everyone has that someone that motivates them to the next goal, to do better, to want better, to be better! Who inspires you to run happy?
We want you to share who inspires you.
