“By putting one foot in front of the other, by hitting the pavement thousands of times, you prove yourself the ability to fight against time and build persistence, the capacity to stay strong while your muscles are burning up. You strengthen your mind and build a better body”.
If you happen to come here, it is probably because you like running or maybe you would like to start. Well, if this is the case, you are in the right place!
The Running Journey is born to share the passion for running, give tips on diet, workout and training accessories based on personal experience. But, more importantly, this blog aims at inspiring and giving the right motivation in pursuing your fitness and life goals.
In this blog, you will not find detailed technical explanations on doing intervals or secret programmes to crush your PR. The purpose of The Running Journey is to spread the idea of running that goes beyond the mere physical aspect.
The Running Journey believes in running as a form of relief, a space of freedom, a remedy against bad thoughts, a challenge against your limits and fears. By putting one foot in front of the other, by hitting the pavement thousands of times, you prove yourself the ability to fight against time and build persistence, the capacity to stay strong while your muscles are burning up. You strengthen your mind and build a better body.
Running is one of the most primitive activity: our ancestors learned to run as a way to survive in difficult natural conditions. Running is a unique channel of connection with nature, a free therapy for your soul and a cure against anxiety. You get lost while discovering new places, colours and amazing smells, you temporary forget the problems with your boss or the deadline that is approaching in a few days; there is only you and the sound of your steps.
These are the concepts that shape the contents of The Running Journey.
However, what really creates a sense of purpose is the possibility of sharing your experience with others. That is why, Margaret Fuller once said, “if you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it”. The Running Journey wants to be a small community where to exchange views, opinions and get ideas from those who believe in a healthy lifestyle. So, feel free to actively participate, leave your comments and suggestions on what you would like to read or on how to improve the work 🙂 And do not forget to subscribe! 😉
