Product Review: Custom Running Journal by Journal Menu

This is a sponsored post in that I received a custom journal free to review from Journal Menu. I did not promise a good review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

Journaling your life away. Is it worth it? Absolutely! And I have gone through many journals in my years of running. Some fall to the wayside before I ever get to the end of the book and some were used from front to back only hoping for more pages. You see, I need a journal with good writing space that fits my needs but perhaps has a bit flexibility as my needs in life change from season to season. Gone are the days of tracking food and what I eat. That serves me no huge purpose right now. But every day I track mileage but I have a little log book for that and an online log. Do I need another journal in my life?

Some would say no but I say yes. I tried the Move. Nourish. Believe. journal but it just didn't fit me. The added pages well...they really didn't add value to my life, which is a shame as the journal was beautiful. It just wasn't a good fit for me. I was always trying to squeeze my thoughts into the tinier weekend boxes; therefore, cutting my precious notes short. Ummm....that defeated the purpose of me journaling and in all reality, I have MORE thoughts on the weekend and LONGER runs...hence the more thoughts. I needed weekend space.

Enter my custom journal. You can pick what insert pages you want so if running isn't your thing, there is an insert set perfect for you. Trust me. Check them out

You can also pick your cover and add any special sayings, quotes, etc on it --- you know, whatever makes you smile. Do you like what I picked? I LOVE it!


Now let's get inside it and take a look. 

There are a couple of pages to track your goals with a start date, deadline, and place to mark when you achieve it.


There is a page talking about SMART goals and if you have followed me long enough you know I love SMART goals. Plus there is space for you to write your own SMART goals. How cool is that?!


For those interested in body measurements, you have plenty of space to chart that and in all reality, I would prefer body measurement tracking over logging your weight. That number on the scale lies and isn't a true story but if you love tracking your pounds (or kilograms), there is space for that too.


There are pages to learn about mobility and a quick guide to mobilization PLUS training plans for a 5k, half marathon, and a marathon.


But check this out! Pages for race reviews!!!! Woo-hoo!!!!


And the pages for daily running and notes have blocks of equal size for every day of the week. I love the amount of note space as it will allow me to add the comments that I want to add each day. 


To wrap things up beautifully, at the end of the journal you have a pace chart with pace, 5k time, 10k time, half marathon time, and marathon time. This journal truly rocks the boat!

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for this journal and look forward to using it to log my thoughts on the run.

Daily Bible Verse: Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. ~ Deuteronomy 31:6
