If you’re STILL looking for motivation… Here’s a great list to use as a start.

In light of my last 5K.
So that’s why Kenyans are such fast runners…
Although, it’s hard to imagine one of those lazy hippos, often found chilling in the water, to be able to run very fast, a quick Google search has revealed:
"Despite its stocky shape and short legs, it can easily outrun a human. Hippos have been clocked at 30 km/h (19 mph) over short distances. The hippopotamus is one of the most aggressive creatures in the world and is often regarded as one of the most dangerous animals in Africa.”
Next time you’re on a run and feeling unmotivated, just picture a 3 ton barrel-shaped torso with enormous mouth and teeth, nearly hairless body (ew?) and stubby legs… angrily barreling down on you (excuse the pun). So if you don’t want to get stomped and trampled to death, you better do like Forrest Gump and get to running!
