Ahhh…a little Running Therapy! From our favourite inspirational source, Gibson’s Daily Running Quotes:
“Running is the best therapy I’ve ever had. We burn, we push, we sweat, we suffocate and we see that we are stronger and more refined for our pain. The awareness of this strength gives us the confidence we need to go home, shower, and face the rest of our day, our week, our year.” -Kristin Armstrong, Mile Markers: The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run.
It bears repeating: “It’s my soul that keeps me running. My body told me to quit a couple of miles ago…”.
“Going running may not always seem like the obvious thing to do in times of intense stress, but we assure you it works. ‘When you do any form of exercise, running included, your body releases a cocktail of happy hormones into the blood stream – serotonin, dopamine and endorphins – that make you feel euphoric and blissful,’ says running coach and stress management consultant Dan Roberts. ‘These are your body’s natural pain relievers and will be released every time you go for a run.'” -Jill Cartwright, www.womensrunninguk.co.uk/
