If you require a regular dose of running feels, we recommend following these nine Twitter accounts to get more of what you love.
Ryan HallU.S. Olympic marathoner 1 of 10
Ryan Hall gained 40 pounds since retiring from professional running last winter. But he didn't gain this weight from a steady diet of hot dogs and cheeseburgers—it's all muscle. In April, Hall tweeted a selfie that displayed his new, toned physique and disclosed his new weight: a stout 165 pounds.
Hall announced in June that he's going to participate in the World Marathon Challenge, a brutal test of endurance and recovery where runners attempt seven marathons on seven continents in seven days. While he won't be anywhere near his personal best 2:04:58 (fastest marathon ever by an American), he'll instead opt for a leisurely 6 to 6:30 minutes per mile pace, according to an interview with Sports Illustrated.
On this running legend's Twitter account, you can keep up with his newfound passion for weight training, his never-ending love for running as well as other philanthropic pursuits.
Dorothy BealCreator of #irunthisbody; writer; coach 2 of 10
We've never run with Dorothy Beal, but we imagine she's hard to keep up with—because that's exactly how her Twitter presence feels.
She created the #irunthisbody hashtag; she's a writer, a coach, a runner and a mom of three. It begs the question: What doesn't she do?
Follow Dorothy for some motivation, nutritional advice and fascinating insight into the lifestyle of an avid runner.
USATFOfficial Twitter of USA Track & Field 3 of 10
If you're a fan of the sport and bleed red, white and blue, it's your patriotic duty to follow USA Track & Field on Twitter.
Followers of this account get an inside look into the training and lifestyles of our country's top representatives of the sport. With photos, videos, updates and athlete profiles, this Twitter feed is sure to keep fans engaged. And since it includes all track and field disciplines, you get the occasional non-running tweets, too. Because who doesn't enjoy watching pole vaulting?
Nick SymmondsU.S. Olympic runner 4 of 10
Two-time Olympian Nick Symmonds, planned to compete in the 800 meters in Rio before announcing his withdrawal as a result of an ankle injury.
But Symmonds has always been more than a man in a pair of running shoes. His Twitter feed also reveals a writer and entrepreneur who's not afraid to speak his mind.
Because it's an Olympic year, his feed includes links to interviews, race tips and training, sprinkled with his opinion on hot-button issues such as doping and fair compensation for athletes. He's also the founder of Run Gum (the only PED he uses).
Bart YassoCRO of Runner's World 5 of 10
Bart Yasso's title of Chief Running Officer at Runner's World happens to be one of the least interesting things about him.
His extensive list of feats would make any serious runner green with envy. He invented a marathon training schedule used all over the world, belongs to a select group of individuals who have completed races on all seven continents, is a five-time IRONMAN finisher, and has cycled across the country twice—just to name a few.
On second thought, maybe you don't want to follow him on Twitter, as it'll become a daily reminder of your inferiority.
Meb KeflezighiU.S. Olympic marathoner 6 of 10
Those with vast knowledge of the sport consider Meb Keflezighi as one of the greatest American marathoners.
While many might remember his gutsy performance at the 2004 Olympics—which earned him a silver medal—others know him for his success at the Boston Marathon two years ago when he became the first American man to win the race in three decades. The victory was particularly emotional given the horrific bombing that occurred the year prior.
Despite a slew of injuries that could have easily stifled his career, Keflezighi's accomplishments remain unparalleled. We can't help but wonder if maybe there is something to that special sauce he talks about in his Twitter bio.
Jay JohnsonRunning coach 7 of 10
If you want to see improvement in your running, Coach Jay Johnson is the man to follow.
Johnson helps runners run faster, and he helps coaches become better at helping runners run faster. His training plan "Simple Marathon Training: The Right Training for Busy Adults with Hectic Lives" is especially useful for those who can't dedicate every waking moment to training. All of his 140-character nuggets are equally invaluable and always digestible.
You'll feel more accomplished merely following him on Twitter, even if you fail to reach your next PR.

Running USA's Twitter bio says it all: It's the place to go for running industry insights and other resources.
Running USA remains one of running's greatest advocates. Their multiple conferences are must-attends for organizations in the running scene, and its annual National Runners Survey assesses the demographics, attitudes, habits and tech preferences of more than 10,000 runners across the nation.
