44 Running Captions for Instagram

Running takes a lot of water, patience, and dedication. Nothing motivates a runner more than being able to share their progress and their pride with others. Next time you share a shot of yourself tearing down the track or jogging through the woods, pick a caption that expresses your passion. Let everyone know that you’re a runner, and you mean business.
