Can You Spot Your Running Spirit Animal?

Can You Spot Your Running Spirit Animal?

So, I don’t always write super serious articles. Sometimes, I get to write about goofy gifs, thoughts cyclists have during a century (without going too negative…) and in this case, all about what your running ‘spirit animal’ is. So, it’s a fun story over at MapMyRun, but there is actually a pretty solid service-oriented side to it.

For example, if your spirit animal is a dolphin, we dive into the more playful side of running. That, of course, is fartleks—and we get into how to incorporate them into your run. Basically, you find what style speaks to you, and we talk through how you can make that work to your advantage. It’s a little silly, but honestly, I had such a blast writing it, and it did inspire my runs to all feel a little more playful and goofy. Because at the end of the day, I run because it’s fun and I love it, not to go pro!

Oh, and obviously, my running spirit animal is a dachshund. In case you were wondering. (Small, but thinks it’s a giant that can easily run with the big dogs.)
