And This Is What We Think Of

This “Daily Kick in the Butt” comes courtesy of Runner’s World.  I like it because sometimes we can’t fully explain to “non-believers” why we do what we do.

Daily lives are often about “the grind”—work, kids, chores, obligations, repeat. Focusing on training for this marathon, and thinking about how incredibly long it is, is about freeing your mind and letting your body follow. It’s about pushing through the hill, and the next hill. And it’s about going out on a run while fighting 30-mph winds. It’s about looking outside, knowing the temps are in the 20s, and still lacing up the shoes. It’s setting aside “me” time to get my training in so that I can accomplish my goals for this race.

  1. “…It’s about looking outside, knowing the temps are in the 20s, and still lacing up the shoes.” Ahhh I hate this one, but yes, it’s something we have to do as runners.
