Learnings and inspirations via Pinterest

I’ve been slowly collecting a variety of pins on my pinterest boards and am always amazed at how inspired I am by then and how much I actually learn by reading a few simple words. Whenever I need a quick dose of perspective or to slap myself back into reality, whether it be a worry, stress, fear or frustration, I read one of these suckers and bam, back to reality, like whoa. (and it sure boosts the running and barre n9ne hurts-so-good motivation, too!).

So I thought I’d include a few of my latest favorites on this fabulous Friday for a little dose of inspiration, perspective, and hopefully, a smile. Enjoy!

The next time I try to run before I walk, I will remember this one. It will come in handy as barre n9ne training gets heavily underway this weekend!


This one needs zero explanation. Zero.
A universal truth I never would have learned, had I not gotten divorced. I absolutely believe this 100%. Don't settle.
This screams my realization that I used to 'go halfway and then stop.' No more. Commit and you will see results.
Because I never thought I was a runner. I am a runner because I run. And I ❤ it.
Failure isn't bad...failure means learning and trying again.
Live a drama-free life. This is my mantra.
I strive for this. The first instinct is to run from the challenge, from living boldly. This is my reminder.
Make time. For you. For love. For friends. And a little more again for you.

  1. Awesome quotes! I just got an invite to Pinterest last week (a little late to this party!), but I haven’t had time to check it out.

    Have an awesome weekend!

  2. Ohhhh I totally want to repin ALL of these!! I love the comparison one – the “thief” language especially. Incredibly well-said. I wish I had come up with some of these myself – who are these people who are so inspirational with their words, and such simple phrases too, you know?

  3. “You want results? Then train like it” is one I need. I was REALLY pushing myself and it is SO hard. I don’t know how you run so many miles…and I don’t know how I’m going to get 13.1. Every step is a battle, I feel. But Ijust keep going, and don’t quit. May 6 is still a couple months away so I’m hoping I get better by then!

    1. It’s such a TRUE statement, as simple as it sounds, isn’t it? But honestly, you will do great for the half, I promise! Are you following any sort of training schedule?

  4. I like the run one… People always ask if I’m a runner and I always say no. I don’t run long enough or fast enough. It’s just me that thinks I’m not. My mom and brother and everyone else thinks I am.
