Just thinking about what gets me out of the house. I think I am mostly motivated by the season and/or weather. I love running in the hot summer and I get so many more miles in. Everything is green and beautiful. Conversely, I struggle to get motivated in the winter. It’s cold and gray and lifeless. 

What’s your motivation for running?

My motivation was around my running goals.  I only started running later in life just over the past 7 years at first it was to run a 5k, than moved to a run a 10k, and than up to a half marathon.  I also had a goal to read more so I combined that goal with my training and added audiobooks into the mix and only would listen to audio books while I'm running.

Now my goals are annual milage running goals that improve over the previous year (750 miles this year).
