Pintrest Motivation: How to use Pintrest to Motivate you to Run

These days, you can look to websites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, eHow, DIY, and others to gain a little perspective, knowledge, and guidance on how to build things, where to find things, how to network, and how to do something cool.

Pinterest is one of those sites.  It is social media wrapped up in pictures and videos "pinned" to various "Boards" that users create.  You can create as many boards as you want, and if you browse the site for just a few seconds you can see that people are pinning all sorts of random things they come across online.

I like Pinterest Pins of Built in Patio Kitchens. I also like Pinterest Pins of Running Quotes that are pasted across pictures of Runners, Swimmers, and Cyclists in training and races.  It is one thing to read a quote, but reading that same quote when it is associated with something visual like a picture of Steve Prefontaine crushing his competitors, takes it to another level.

Make your own that motivates you. It doesn't really matter what it is, as long as it impacts you in a way the prompts you to do your thing.  Run.

Have a look at my Pinterest Board and see what I mean: Pinterest Motivation
