Yes, yes I did.
(Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read about it here)
After 6 years, ba-zillions of miles, 14 Half Marathons and 2 Full Marathons…
I am still making mistakes.
I am still breaking my own rules.
I still haven’t figured it out yet.
To be honest, I don’t think I ever will.
And that is okay.
Failing is what makes running interesting.
If we had it all figured out…
It would be boring.
It would be predictable.
And running would not be awesome.
So, if it takes this…
To enable me to experience this…
I will take it any day of the week.
Yes, yes I will.
Let this post be a reminder to those of you who beat yourselves up (I’m talkin’ to you Ashley) for missing a PR, bonking during a race, or having a crappy run… Don’t.
You will have good days, and you will have bad days…
That is a part of running.
The struggle is what keeps us honest and humble.
