New Balance Runner's Express

There is a section on our site just for runners, titled Runner's Express. You can find inspirational quotes, passages, articles, stories; and you can even leave your story in the "Where in the World Do You Run" section.

Each month we feature a quote from The Runner's Book of Daily Inspiration; A Year of Motivation, Revelation and Instruction by Kevin Nelson. The book is a collection of quotes about running, keeping fit, and what it all means to active folks like you. What I love about this book is that you can relate the concepts of each quote to your everyday life. It's not just for marathoners or regular runners; it's for everyone.

The latest quote on Runner's Express is about New Year's Resolutions (I know, huge surprise there!) but it talks about how to make this year the best year ever, in your running. But, why not make it the best year all around?

"Running is a thing worth doing not because of the future rewards it bestows, but because of how it feeds our bodies and minds and souls in the present. Go out for a run today, and let it be the start of something grand. "

So maybe if you don't run and are thinking about it, this could be the year you jump on the running bandwagon and hit the trails. Like the quote says, don't do it for the future, do it for your health, mind and spirit now.
