Finding My Running Motivation

Earlier this week I wrote about losing my running motivation. I don’t know what happened but only a little while after that post went live I found something which really excites me: The Speed Project. Twenty teams ran 344 miles across America from Las Angeles to Las Vegas and I want to do that.

I want to do that!

You all know the amazing Becs Gentry from her turn on London ETC? Well she did just that last weekend and when I saw this photo I was sold.

She, along with her team, relay raced their way from LA to LV and were faster than any other team before.

Don’t worry I am really realistic about this. First thing I need to do is sort the pain out so that’s why I have decided to not go via the NHS again and instead go private. I have my first appointment today and shall let you all know how it goes.

After that, I want to increasing my running mileage again. I want to start going to speed sessions and run clubs again. I hate that I haven’t been to either in a long, long time.

Then I want to run from Las Angeles to Nevada. I don’t care how long it takes, I want to do this!

I feel a sense of pleasure that I haven’t in a while – it’s so lovely to have a goal in mind and to be motivated to achieving it.
