UPDATED: WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!!
When I began running and working out more, I struggled. I would get out on the road and start and I'd have to stop after awhile because I just didn't have the endurance or stamina to keep going. The advantage to running outside was that I could use visuals to continue on by saying to myself, okay just run to that telephone pole, then that green mailbox, just make it to the top of that hill, etc.
It actually worked for me and I began running farther and was able to keep going. However, just those small goals weren't quite enough, I began having to talk to myself out loud. Some things I would say, you can do this, how bad do you want to fit into your clothes that are too tight and my personal motto, you are worth this!
I was online one day and came across a site that was promoting a company that carries merchandise that is perfect for those that need the motivation to get their workouts in and keep going. Endorphin Warrior is an online company that can provide you with those words of encouragement when you need it most.
They carry bracelets, rings, shirts, hats and even keyrings. There are plenty of words or phrases to choose from. I had a hard time deciding which word I wanted to receive because they are all perfect. I could see that most of the words would inspire me to just keep moving forward. I chose "Unbreakable" for my bracelet because when I don't feel like working out or I am hurting physically, I push myself to do it. When life has me stressed out, worn out and feeling down, I just push myself to keep doing it. Here is a photo of my bracelet:
I have been wearing my bracelet daily for a week and have had no issues at all. It has a snap closure so it is easy to get off and on.
Endorphin Warrior is also encouraging young kids to run and get physically active by donating $1 from every order in March to support a local youth running club for lower-income kids! My 12 year old son participates in a school running club so I love that this company is giving back to the community!
Also, during the month of March, they are giving customers a FREE dog tag/key ring to anyone who places an order on their website!
