My mantra through much of my marathon training so far as been “I run this body.” This is a saying, coined by Dorothy Beal, I found while looking for good running blogs to follow (mile-posts.com). Ever since seeing those words I knew I wanted the shirt. Lucky me, they just came back on the market!
Aside from the shirt though, I think this is a powerful mantra whether you’re a runner or not. You’re in control of every decision that you make. No one puts the cake in your mouth and chews it for you. No one downs that last shot and then makes you to drive. No one ties you up to stop you from getting in your run today. Besides you. You run your body. I run my body. So let’s do this.
