Motivation, where are you?


You have certainly felt this way : sometimes we really do not feel like running. Each and every one of us has their own source of motivation for those situations…

Carl, for example, tries to remember the reasons that pushed him to apply in the first place and how he would feel if he wouldn’t be able to achieve his goal. Nicolas also pictures his goal, crossing the finish line in Paris, to make him realize that he really does need the training.

Lies and Eef count on the peer pressure of their relatives to tell them to go anyway. Maya also counts on her friends and tries to find someone she can run with.

As for Marc and Katrien, they think of Tim, our coach, and his words at the start of our adventure: ‘I am a very nice guy, however there is one thing you can do to make me angry:  not respecting my training schedule.’ As they really don’t want to wake the sleeping lion, they quickly find their motivation and put on their running shoes!

Finally, Sien give herself a reward after the run, like her favorite dessert.

If these advices don’t work for you, here are the quotes that motivate us when we’re really down.
