TrainingTruths: Freedom Runs

I like to think of last week as a week of freedom runs. The Rock 'n Roll Providence Half Marathon was over and I wasn't ready to roll right into preparation for Reach the Beach and ZOOMA yet. It was nice to just go out and run without any thought to training schedules.

#TrainingTruth: Running on trails is a great way to break free from the noise and traffic of every day life. 

#TrainingTruth: There is a certain liberation in being able to run anywhere at any time (like during soccer practice).

#TrainingTruth: You can meet the nicest people when you're out for a run and not constrained by finish times and pace.

#TrainingTruths is not just about me. We all like to see what everyone else is doing and use that information to assess ourselves. It's not judgement. It's a way to share and learn and make changes when necessary.

To participate all you have to do is share your #TrainingTruths:
  1. Tag a Twitter post with the hashtag #TrainingTruths
  2. Comment on the Running Escapades Facebook page 
  3. Leave a link to your own blog post in the comments
I look forward to reading your #TrainingTruths!


  1. Off to tweeeeet the truths.


  2. #1 is so true for me right now, because just when I need a boost my friend wanted to go trail running, it really does give you a feeling of freedom from every day life.

  3. Cute post! I love the locals that take your picture and be in the picture with you. I have not run on trails in a couple of months because the heat has the biting flys pretty bad. Ready for cool weather to get back on the trail. SPA Love!

  4. I have not tried trail running yet and am really starting to feel like I'm missing out!


I love comments!
