Sometimes our runs makes us feel good and empowered, but sometimes it does leave us questioning our sanity. You ask yourself why you are doing this to yourself – again! Here are 10 thoughts you’ve probably experienced – some questioning whether you are insane and some to keep yourself going!

#1 Midway Into Your Run

“Hmm, what am I going to have for brunch after my run? Maybe that donut!”

“I’m King/Queen of the Road!”


#3 When you’re 2km From Finishing Your Run

I can do this! I am strong!

#4 While Tackling An Uphill

“What goes up, must go down!”

#5 When You Are Lacing Your Shoes At 5am In The Morning
