I thought I would take the time to explain the meaning behind the name of my blog. When I decided to start a running blog I struggled with what to name it. My wife came across the following quote by Jesse Owens:
”I always loved running &it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power.Â You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.”
I decided to choose the name because the quote sums up what I get out of running. I enjoying the fact that I can set my own goals andÂ push myself as hard as I want in order to achieve those goals.
