Came across this on Pinterest. One thing about my running, I will probably never win or place or show at my pace. When I started, my preschooler would always ask – “Did You Win?” as I came home from races….EVERYTIME….. and I always had to say “No”.
When I started running back in 1999 for all the wrong reasons….”cuz my boyfriend of the time was a runner”; my heart was not in it because I was so slow. Of course when the relationship ended so did my running.
Four years ago I started back and have accepted my pace and love my time on the trail. I am always trying to go faster, but that doesn’t always happen. Of course I always look at my numbers – pace, place finish overall and division. Now I am just competing with myself and I sometimes fall short of my expectations. Though my attitude is certainly different than back in 2000 when I quit, I do have to remind myself after some runs….don’t lose your heart, just keep trying – and train smarter.
This week again since I was on Pinterest looking for some motivation, participating in Amy at Disney Living‘s Pinspiration Blog Hop! Check them out! She blogged about her running today!
