Once a Runner and Joan Benoit Samuelson

I think I’ve found a new favorite You Tube channel y’all. You’ll  probably see more videos popping up on “Motivation Mondays” from this channel. They seriously have some great motivating short videos. So, if you’re looking for a good video to motivate you, I suggest heading over to the channel in this video. You won’t be disappointed! I loved this one because it ties into where I’m at in my running journey. Since becoming a daddy, I’ve thought a lot about what life would look like. However, it’s hard to imagine it without running involved. I’ve caught the running bug. So, once a runner, always a runner!

Since I don’t just want these Motivation Mondays to be about fun memes, I thought I’d include this lecture given by the winner of the very first Olympic Women’s Marathon…Joan Benoit Samuelson. I know the lecture is a little long (1 hour, 20 minutes). However, if this lecture doesn’t give a you a lot to keep you motivated in your training, I don’t know what will. She hits on so many great points. Rather than posting them, I’ll just let you discover the inspiring words of Joan yourself. If you invest the time in the video, you won’t be disappointed.
