Motivational Monday: Featured Sneakers #12

As we celebrate Christmas, I also want us to stay motivated because we all know the sweets and desserts that have tempted us all….or just me! This weeks Featured Sneakers belong to my good friend Abby! She’s a blend – blogger friend – of mine who has struggled through different injuries on her path to tackle running milestones in her life. She’s also one of my sidekicks with the #HOLIDAYADAY December photo challenge who is the graphic genius behind our layout. Check out a little about her here!

 

Name: Abby LandBlog: backatsquarezero.com


What is your favorite way to workout/exercise: Run! ( I also enjoy spin & barre)

What is your #1 cheat food: Homemade mac ‘n cheese or any, and every, dessert.

What advise do you have for those starting on a fitness journey: Find something you enjoy and focus on that. I hate yoga, I am not a big fan of weight lifting. However, instead of stopping I just kept trying until I discovered running.

 

Dream destination race/location: Too many – NYC Marathon, Chicago Marathon, New Orleans Marathon, and hiking the Grand Canyon rim to rim in 1 day currently rank at the top of the list.

Favorite inspirational fitness personality/trainer: I love watching US marathon runners Kara Goucer and Shalene Flanagan.


Workout apparel must have (+brand): Mizuno Wave Creations. My favorite shoe and the reason why I still have 10 toenails.


Motivational motto/quote: “The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.” John Bingham – and – “I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.” ― Mae West

      After my string of injuries I’ve actually been contemplating getting it tattooed in little print across the inside of my foot. However, I keep wussing out.

    Great advice to keep trying to find something that you like rather than absolutely hating your workout. The only way it will be a lifelong habit is if you enjoy it.

    Merry Christmas to two great bloggers! Enjoy!
