When I first started running I could barely complete three kilometers without having what felt like an aneurism. However, I stubbornly persisted and I gradually began to notice a change in my body and what I could do. Physically and mentally I was waking up rejuvenated and ready for my day to begin with a short a morning run. The aneurisms disappeared and were replaced with a satisfying stiffness in my newly forming muscles. My initial weight prior to running was 100 kilograms but after three weeks of running almost every day I discovered I had lost nearly 2 kilograms. I celebrated by heading out with my friends for a night of drunken debauchery. After weighing myself the morning after I found that I was again back to 100 kilograms. This taught me a valuable lesson about running and life in general. To hammer home that lesson I bought myself a small silver charm with the number 100 imprinted on it to remind me of why I started running. I hung my charm on a small leather bracelet and every run since I have worn it. Although the benefits of running are innumerable, being a runner is about accepting a mindset of determination and discipline. Since I started wearing my running charm I have reapplied myself with redoubled intensity. Every time I think I am close to spent or feel exhausted enough to consider stopping I glance at the silver gleam at my wrist. Because of the determination imbued in me from my charm I lost weight consistently almost every week for 7 months until I reached my goal weight of 80 kilograms.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just starting out, there is sure to be a piece of running jewelry to help you start running, celebrate your accomplishments and motivate your efforts. Personally, I am a firm believer that one of the most important things in life is having fun. I would never have believed it 12 months ago if someone had told me the hilarity, amusement and tremendous self-fulfillment running would bring me. I enjoy stepping on the scale and looking in the mirror to see the results each week of running brings me. The true beauty of running jewelry is that it your piece of jewelry becomes far more than a simple trinket or precious pendant. It becomes something more, the embodiment of your goals and lifestyle, infiltrating your life in a way you never planned for. I hope running jewelry keeps surprising me with its seemingly endless ability to keep me running; it has been a wild ride so far.
