I found this picture of myself from this last weekend’s 10k race. Just love that the SF skyline is behind me, I look a little like I’m in pain, but I look like I’m breathing!

This is one of the reasons I think yoga is so beneficial to runners is the huge focus on breathing. I find that focus on stabilizing my breathing and just making sure I’m not holding my breath has helped me so much in going farther and faster in my running!

So, my Motivation Monday thought is:

Don’t forget to breathe!
