Podium Finishes & 9 More Victories by MapMyRun Users

As the leaves start changing color and the air gets a little more crisp, this time of year is made for running — and MapMyRun users are taking full advantage. Crushing marathons, half-marathons and 5Ks is no easy feat, but that’s just what we do. That, and cheer each other on along the way.

1. 3 months into running, and hooked!

2. Recognizing the benefits of cross-training.

3. We all love our “firsts.” Happy first marathon, Mandy!

4. Staying consistent and dedicated every. single. day.

5. Finding your tribe — and adding new dimension to your running!

6. Knowing how to break down big challenges into littler ones.


7. Setting goals and crushing them, no matter what!

8. Knowing when to change your routine, even if that means breaking a 465-day, nearly 3,200-mile running streak.

9. Couples who run together, stay together (or something like that).

10. Always remembering that we can use running to give back.
