Running seems to be the fitness choice number one. Everyone runs. Around the city, around the park, around the beach. Early in the morning or late at night. Just put on your workout clothes and get going. And if you need some extra spring motivation, Instagram star Christina Tosi told Nike why she’s totally in love with running.
“I usually run by myself because my schedule can get a little crazy,” Christina says. “I love running in the early morning as much as I love running home after work at sunset — or long after the sun goes to sleep, when the city lights shine bright. I have different routes and paths depending on my mood, what I know I want to think about on my run, the weather and the end goal. I love a good adventure, too. If a friend is nearby I’ll happily take a running partner, and when I travel for work I love to run with other chefs or friends. In my downtime, I hit the trails in Virgina with my sis or another cross-country gal pal from my childhood.”
So, what’s Christina’s motivation to get going? “Sometimes you need to push yourself further than you think you’re willing to go,” Christina adds. “You’re capable of much more than you give yourself credit for. This translates into every single day, every speed bump life throws at you and every challenge you face; when you know how to talk to yourself on a run, you become a master at motivating yourself through anything. Running is my me-time. My running goal is to keep the love of it alive and pumping every time.”
