The Hard is What Makes it Great

Posted by Briana Boehmer on May 23, 2017 9:37:19 AM

So many things in life are simply put — hard. Not much comes easy. Intuitively, we know this  to be true, yet we often see people reaching for a way to debunk this almost natural law of the universe. And why should we expect anything to come easy anyway? Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own explained “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.” Can’t argue with you on that one Tom, well said.

What's Your Why?

Posted by Run The Edge on May 23, 2017 9:35:08 AM

When our friend Andy Clarke posts in our Facebook groups, we know that it will inspire everyone to get involved. Last week he posted the following:

"Why did you do it Wednesday" - Why did you start your fitness journey? Why do you love to run/wog or walk? Why do you want to go farther? Why do you want to go faster? Tell me WHY!!
For me it was only about the fitness benefits and then I met all of you. I have enjoyed this group so much and enjoy trying to help others as best as I can. It is also great for killing time when your kids are grown and out of the house!!

Here are just a few of the awesome comments we received from our crazy inspirational Run The Year 2017 members:

Posted by Run The Edge on Nov 14, 2012 12:00:00 AM

Love stories, like people, come in all shapes and sizes.  The following love story, sent to us by Lee Bennett, touched our hearts because he and his wife Tanya were able to change their shapes and sizes as their love for each other, their children, and healthy lifestyles transformed them inside and out.  We were so moved by their story that we asked permission to share it with you.  They graciously agreed.

A New Starting Line

Posted by Adam Goucher on Nov 9, 2011 1:00:00 PM

“I am not somebody who just likes to run. I am a runner. This is the difference between a pastime and a passion. I like to play golf, but I am not a golfer. I like to cook, but I am not a chef. I don’t just like to run. I am a runner. It is a passion. It is part of who I am and is woven into the fabric of my personality, character, and psyche.” – Adam Goucher from “Running the Edge”
