How to be MIGHTY!

Definition of Mighty

No matter where you stand politically you should agree that seeing the large gatherings of women in the women’s marches throughout our nation and other countries is empowering. Sometimes when you stand as one you can feel powerless but when you gather together with others you can share a collective energy and ideas and come together to be MIGHTY! We need to do more to be MIGHTY together and this includes doing things differently on a daily basis.

Running  is a sport of one that is unless you are participating in a relay team of some kind where your results depend on the collective effort. But running can be a collective effort in other ways by working as a team to support one another, to cheer each other on, to help each other with running form, to push each other to be faster. This is even true if it means that all of those workouts and training drills make your friend faster than you. While success is sweet no matter how it is achieved isn’t it sweeter and more powerful when you worked your way towards your goals together? You can still run as one but run together!Doesn’t that feel more MIGHTY?

Even during a race you can use the collective energy of other runners to help you to the finish line. One of the ways to do this is to share conversations with other runners before the race. Ask them why they are racing, talk to them about what inspires them and ask them about their goals. During the race you can focus on the strengths of others to help you through the tough parts in your own quest for success. Focus on a runner who looks strong and relaxed and imagine their energy and the hard work and breathing of others pushing you along the course.

There is also strength and MIGHTINESS in opening yourself up by sharing your own goal reaching success stories but also your stumbles and failures. None of us is perfect and by allowing others to see that we help lift others up to being more MIGHTY and become MIGHTIER ourselves.

Don’t be afraid to say I can do this but I will need some help along the way. It’s ok to feel like you may not be as strong but don’t let that be an anchor that weighs you. You must empower and embolden yourself and say I CAN and I WILL do this.

  1. It’s funny, I while I do consider myself mighty in many ways, right now I feel physically UNmighty (I haven’t lifted weights in weeks, I can’t really go out and do things) and I feel a bit powerless (there is only so much that I can do to ensure that this baby starts to grow in my belly). It is a disconcerting position to be in. I’ll stop now because otherwise this will turn into a therapy session, but yeah, I’m caught in conflict this week.
    I felt so mighty when I did my 50 mile week, though. I felt unstoppable.

  2. This is a great post. And I totally agree — the various marches this weekend were empowering and mighty. It was a living democracy at its finest! I think whichever side of the debate you’re on, you have to admit that it was a wonderful expression of free speech.

    And I always agree about running as a group effort and making everyone feel mighty as they move through training or a race.

    Great post. 🙂

  3. I have not really worked out in the last 4 days and so I am not feeling very mighty. However, tomorrow is a new day and I will get my mojo back!

  4. Sharing goals as well as admitting we stumble and have failures is so humbling. Leaning on friends is refreshing and needed!! Running makes me feel mighty and working hard every day toward goals is so empowering and mighty! Great post and a great way to start the week my friend! xo

  5. Great post! I think many people out there need to read this message. I love meeting other runners at races, especially at the start line. It’s always neat too when you see them finish or at the finish line and hear about their race. Be might and be fearless!
    Love your running photo!

  6. Great post (and pic!) I love connecting with other runners at races and expos. It really motivates me and it’s just so great to connect with like minded people especially because my only in-real-life runner friend is my mom lol
