I am constantly jumping from thing to thing, so as you can imagine, running on the same roads over and over again gets really boring to me.
I am not one of those people that can just go out and run thee miles four times a week with no end goal. It keeps things interesting, and the idea of prizes and free drinks at the end of a run is very motivating!
I am Heather Montgomery, formerly known as Running With Sass®, a 30 year old living in Mississippi with my husband, baby, and toy poodle.


If I know I am going to be bored, it is so much harder for me to lace up for a long run, so I try to pick different neighborhoods to run in to keep things interesting. Finding a training plan where I am running different distances and speeds every time helps to keep me form slacking. I knew if I put it “out there” on the internet that I was running a race, I would have to actually train! Try to learn about yourself and see what the underlying problem is as to why you don’t want to go on an individual run and see if it’s something you can fix or change.


However, nine times out of ten, my excuses are not legitimate, and I just need a little push to get out the door. Below are eight ways to motivate yourself to run that have helped me over the years when I am having a hard time getting motivated to run for whatever reason.
