What’s in a name

I’ve been thinking a while now why I chose the name “slowrunnergirl” and if it is a good fit. Spoiler: of course it is!

What’s in the name?

The name consists of three parts. Slow isn’t just about the speed, it is also about taking the time to do the necessary things. Like slow food, slow running is much more than just the words itself. Now comes the hard part. Girl! It isn’t about my age. It is more about the feeling I want to have while running. No worries in the world, no obligations and exist just in the moment, flying while I carry a smile.

Right, now that this is clarified, there can’t be a post without a picture. Today’s picture is my* brand new manifesto!

A manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government. (source)


That is of course if you are not currently running the MdS or one of the big upcoming races! Then … all bets are off and I wouldn’t have a clue anyway.

  1. Actually, much of that applies if you ARE training. You DO have to run slow to run fast — sometimes (sometimes you have to run fast). Not that my running will ever be qualified as fast. Stretching is important. So is food.

    I guess running is really like life!
