How it All Began. Part II

How it All Began. Part II
I was supposed to meet these people and these communities. I was supposed to learn about them and from them. I was supposed to be the person on the other side of the adventure. I’ve heard people say, and often I’ve stolen, the phrase “the best way to learn a place is by running it.” So that’s what I’m doing. Running, more than driving and certainly more than flying, allows you to truly sense the space you’re in and connect it to the space within you. You can hear, smell, and see your surroundings – the good and bad. You have time to process and think about what’s going on around you as much as what’s going on inside you. That’s my search for America.

How it All Began. Part I

How it All Began. Part I
IAMRUNBOX brand ambassador Maggie Seymour shares her story about how it all began...I don’t believe any big adventures, at least not mine, start with one singular idea – cause and effect are not that linear, or traceable. This adventure is no different. If I had to trace it back, I’d say I got the idea of running across the country because I met a girl who did it before me. I met Anna Judd in 2014 in rural Virginia where we clicked off 27.something miles chatting about feminism, family, and the power of community. In short, she inspired me. Here was this hippie cocktail waitress/artist covering the United States on foot to both understand what was outside her own Orange Country bubble and to raise funds for the veterans’ community – a community she herself wasn’t a part of, but felt connected to. That was the seed.

Journey to 300. Part II

Journey to 300. Part II
Sometimes I have no idea what I'm doing, for example 2 days before I decided I would run my first 100 miles event, which was the Grim Reaper. The course was a 10 mile loop and the nicest thing was I didn't have to carry anything! Got round the first 50 miles without walking in 6:51:04sec, after that I would start walking at certain parts. What I didn't realise was...

Breaking2 two hour marathon

Breaking2 two hour marathon
63 years after Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile barrier, on 6th May 2017 Nike put their corporate neck on the line and put their #breaking2 programme to the test. Two hours and 25 seconds later, the fastest ever recorded marathon was completed and whilst it didn't break two it was certainly a mind-blowing feat of athletic endurance. I'll be honest, I was torn about this event. 50% intrigued and excited and 50% miffed that it was so controlled and brand-specific that it felt a bit sterile. I did however check the result as soon as I woke up on Saturday morning and sat and watched a replay of the it, so I clearly wasn't the ambivalent.

A love letter to running

A love letter to running
I’ll be honest, I only started paying you any attention because you seemed low maintenance and less demanding or unattainable than the others. It sounds harsh but I guess I thought you were easy. I liked that I didn’t have to forward plan and I didn’t need to wear fancy clothes or make a special effort.  I could even keep our time together under cover of darkness so no one had to know. I figured I’d probably find a more glamorous alternative once I’d get established in my job and had more cash to throw around...

Run, Rest, Repeat

Run, Rest, Repeat
The thing is, running can be addictive. The endorphins, the achievements or perhaps just the sheer lack of needing to rely on anything but your own steam, these things can make us keep going even when we know we shouldn’t. Yes, get the bug and enjoy doing things you never thought possible but don’t do it to the risk of being able to carry on doing it in the future. Play the long game.
