How Do You Stay Inspired/Motivated

A few days ago, I mentioned that yet another one of my high school friends had qualified for Kona. I was inspired! I was motivated!  I was ready to take on the triathlon world and beat my bike into submission.  I was gung-ho, so to speak.  Of course, this intensity level doesn't last very long.You settle into a training 'groove' or....not.

So here is my question for all of you.  Since it's so easy to become inspired/motivated by others, how do you keep yourself going after that initial "wow, I want to do that!" glow has faded?

  1. Hearing about others achievements certainly helps, but using running related social media (like your blog), books, movies etc. helps a lot. Last time I got a really good motivation kick was when I watched "Spirit of the Marathon" - after that there was no doubt in my mind, that I had to run another one.
