Meet: Maja


I used to play basketball. A lot. I hated running anything longer than the length of the court and preferred short sprints over anything else. I’m not sure how that led me to long distance running - but here I am.

Since struggling to run a 10km race in 2008 (I had to stop 3 times to get…

Mud cakes for breakfast. 7.5k of local exploring led me down muddy bridleways for some too-early obstacle course action. #running #rundemcrew

Morning moor. 18k done and dusted across Dartmoor. Last 10 in the company of friendly Trevor, a local running coach, and Polly, his collie, exchanging running stories and hooking me up with local races. Also managed to get some Dartmoor ponies and a flock of sheep to run with us but that’s another story. #running #dartmoor #devon

Grenofen Tunnel. One of three tunnels and six bridges put in place for the South Devon & Tavistock Railway built in the 1850s by Brunel. After being closed for 50 years it is now part of 21 mile long Drake’s Trail. Good for a short 7km today. #running #architecture #devon #drakestrail #brunel

Get out and run.

Do not worry about the rest.
Make running a lifestyle. A daily habit, like brushing your teeth. If you run 300+ days a year, every year, for several years, good things will come your way. Start now. Doesn’t matter if you are 16 years old or 66.

If you want to be a decent runner you must get out and run; the rest is just noise.

Get the running in first— that is the foundation. Then: Eat mostly good stuff. Get enough sleep. Stretch if you want to— or don’t. Lift if you like lifting. Cross-train if it makes you happy. Wear minimalist shoes or big bulky ones, whichever you prefer. Listen to music when you run, or not. You can carry water with you on a long run, or you can go without. If you want to do a core routine, then do it— but first you must get out and run.

Run on trails, or streets, or on a treadmill, whatever works for you. Run slowly. Run quickly. Run up hills. Run in the rain. Run in the snow, the heat, the cold. Run into the wind. Run on the days that you do not feel like running. Run on the days that you can’t wait to get out and run. Run with friends. Run alone. Run races. Run in the country. Run in the city. Run in parks. Run when you feel happy. Run when you are depressed. Run when you have a ton of energy. Run when you are feeling like shit. Run when you feel good. Run in the morning. Run at night. Run before work. Run after work. Run.

Today these bad boys ran me to work. This week they’ve carried me out running 4 times. Can’t remember last time I managed that, been at least 8 months. #backinbusiness #running #rundemcrew
