One of the first things women around my age say about my running is some version of “Oh, I could never do that!” Unless there is a glaring reason why not, my response is, “Of course you can, if you want to!”
If you want to do something, never tell yourself you can’t.
This week Meagan struggles with getting out the door, and Sue recaps the Midnight Owl 15K.
I talk about running a lot, write about running, and read about running because I freaking love running. That much is obvious. What might be less obvious is why. I really only have two reasons. One is the endorphin rush. Honestly, a lot of times running is hard and kinda sucks. Sometimes it sucks hard. But if you stick with you might get blessed with a run where your legs are moving freely, your mind is clear, your breathing is comfortable, and you feel like you are flying. And if you’re lucky, it might even happen on race day. And these are the runs that I live for, the runs that keep me coming back. The runs that make me feel like I am whole-heartedly a runner.
This week we are joined by Deanne from itsthesoundofsunshine.blogspot.com, Sue conquers her asthma, Meagan struggles with motivation, plus we’re talking about pace work intervals in our coaching segment.
