  1. Rise and shine baby, this kept me going when my friend Run Long Run whom I met with and ran through instagram in 2013, I left my job and dropped my tool belt and left to Florida to focus solely on training no matter how grueling or simple my life was going to be, I made that decision.

  2. Runners i can run 15 minutes only, is it bad? i am a noob, Its 4 month only ..first day i ran 2 minutes only but now 15 easily…i will be happy if someone tell their own story of running.cheers

  4. 6am and your hand can't make it to the alarm clock before the voices in your head start telling you that it's too early, too dark, and too cold to get out of a bed.

    Aching muscles lie still in rebellion, pretending not to hear your brain commanding them to move

    A legion of voices are shouting their unanimous permission for you to hit the snooze button and go back to dreamland, but you didn't ask their opinion.

    The voice you've chosen to listen to is one of defiance.

    A voice that's says there was a reason you set that alarm in the first place. So sit up, put your feet on the floor, and don't look back because we've got work to do.

    Welcome to The Grind!

    For what is each day but a series of conflicts between the right way and the easy way, 10,000 streams fan out like a river delta before you, Each one promising the path of least resistance.

    Thing is, you're headed upstream. And when you make that choice, when you decide to turn your back on what's comfortable and what's safe and what some would call "common sense", well that's day 1. From there it only gets tougher.

    So just make sure this is something you want. Because the easy way out will always be there, ready to wash you away, all you have to do is pick up your feet.

    But you aren't going to are you?
    With each step comes the decision to take another

    You're on your way now

    But this is no time to dwell on how far you've come. You're in a fight against an opponent you can't see

    Oh but you can feel him on your heels can't you?

    Feel him breathing down your neck

    You know what that is? That's you…Your fears, your doubts and insecurities all lined up like a firing squad ready to shoot you out of the sky

    But don't lose heart

    While they aren't easily defeated, they are far from invincible

    Remember this is The Grind

    The Battle Royale between you and your mind, your body and the devil on your shoulder who's telling you that this is just a game, this is just a waste of time, your opponents are stronger than you.

    Drown out the voice of uncertainty with the sound of your own heartbeat

    Burn away your self doubt with the fire that's beneath you

    Remember what you're fighting for

    And never forget that momentum is a cruel mistress, She can turn on a dime with the smallest mistake.

    She is ever searching for that weak place in your armor

    That one tiny thing you forgot to prepare for

    So as long as the devil is hiding the details, the question remains,"is that all you got?", "are you sure?"

    And when the answer is "yes". That you've done all you can to prepare yourself for battle THEN it's time to go forth and boldly face your enemy, the enemy within
    Only now you must take that fight into the open, into hostile territory
    You're a lion in a field of lions

    All hunting the same elusive prey with a desperate starvation that says VICTORY is the only thing that can keep you alive

    So believe that voice that says " you CAN run a little faster " and that " you CAN throw a little harder " and that " you CAN dive a little deeper" and that, for you, the laws of physics are merely a suggestion.

    Luck is the last dying wish of those who wanna believe that winning can happen by accident, sweat on the other hand is for those who know it's a choice, so decide now because destiny waits for no man. And when your time comes and a thousand different voices are trying to tell you you're not ready for it, listen instead for that lone voice in decent the one that says you are ready, you are prepared, it's all up to you now.

    So rise and shine.

"rise and shine, its 6 am and your hand can't make it to the alarm clock before the voices in your head tell you that its too dark and too cold, aching muscles shout still in rebellion pretending not to hear your brain commanding them to move" XD it actually motivates me to wake up
