Running Inspirational News– August 28, 2021 (Minisode)

Hello Runners,

We all need the inspiration to achieve our goals.

Running inspiration comes from many sources, but I believe our primary source of inspiration comes from other runners. Those that have challenged themselves starting with the believability level at close to zero. “I could never do that,” “that is for other people but not me.” Then they start running, maybe a quarter mile, then a mile, then a 5k, a 10K, a Half Marathon, and then a Marathon. And their life changes. So can yours.

This episode, Stan “the man” Cottrell, Erin Azar, and Liz Poliak are stories that will inspire and motivate you. That is my goal, to bring you inspirational stories of other runners so that you too may be inspired to do something you never thought you could do.

Believe in yourself! You CAN do more than you ever thought possible. Just look to other runners for your inspiration. I do! It’s out there, everywhere!

Thank you for listening to the Feel Good Running Podcast, and please share this with your running friends and on your social media platforms. I would very much appreciate it. And please get on our mailing list. I will send out two Emails per month to announce new episodes and items of interest, all about running. You can do sign up by Clicking HERE!

Train hard, run harder, and be well. And remember to be kind to others, even if some are not kind to you. It’s good for the heart and soul!

~ Jim

About the Host, Jim Lynch

Thank you for listening to my podcast. I'm a long time "Feel Good" runner myself completing 101 Marathons and a certified 50 State finisher having completed a marathon in all 50 states plus DC.

Running is my passion and has really defined my life. With all the support over the years I have personally received from volunteers from all the races I have done, I would like to give back.
