Running through YA

Tuesday, August 12, 2014
High school was not the best time for me when it came to exercise. I packed my schedule with homework and extracurriculars and volunteer work and a job, but didn't put any time aside for exercising, except the 20-30 minutes I got in gym class (provided I had gym that marking period). So when I graduated this June, I made a pact with myself that I would start working out.

Schoolwork, activities, volunteering, working- all of it is important, but so is taking care of myself. And if I don't take care of my body, it's going to make all of that other stuff a lot harder to do. This is my new mentality, one I'm taking with me to college in just a couple of days (Side bar: oh sheesh I'm going to be a college student in a couple of days when did that happen aaaaaaaaaah but yaaaaaaaay.)

With this in mind, I've been running a lot this summer and on Saturday I'll be running a 5k with a couple of friends. I've discovered I really like running- it makes me feel strong and healthy and at peace with myself. So naturally, I have to relate it to YA.

Below are the best YA books for running inspiration.

Are you into running? What YA lit running tips do you have?

  1. Good blog.You have shared here your schoolwork, activities details.Its a good to hear from you.Experience is good and I remember my school days by reading your post.Thanks for sharing.As we all know that each and every one of them gets lots of writing works from schools, such as they has to be write an essay for scholarship, exams and it is a very competition part for them. You must organize your thoughts in an excellent way and should plan your essay carefully.
