Strength, not size

For those of you who aren’t runners (yet), one of the many cool things about the sport is that the professionals are very accessible. It’s one of the only (if not the only?) sports that has both professional and everyday athletes competing at the same time, in the same place. If you’re a weekend basketball […]

  • @kiefferallie put it best when she wrote "Sorry I’m not sorry to redefine the standards.

I run this body.
regardless of size.
I run this body,
because of these thighs.
I run this body,
so don’t even try

I want to gain power, strength, speed, and endurance. I want to gain a sense of accomplishment, an appreciation for my body, and a love of sport. Losing something is the last thing I want.

As my endurance has grown as a runner, so have my thighs. As far as I’m concerned, those thighs can get as big as they want to if they continue to carry me over all the miles at my goal race pace.
