For me, running is my solitude. My happy place. My impossible that has become possible. And my reason to believe everything I see in my dreams will. And has. Become reality. Lately running hasn’t been about how far I have gone. How fast I have gone. Or how far I need to go. Or even if I went at all. No. Lately running has been about my love of running. The fact I can run. And seeing the hearts in nature that I believe, have led me to where I am today.
I want to hold onto this feeling. Tightly. I don’t want to forget where I have been. Where I have been is what gives me the wisdom to know anything I dream of is possible. But you see, May is almost over. June is already beckoning me. Serious training will begin for my races in the fall. And I know me. Time and distance will matter. Sometimes I will be too hard on myself. No wait. Most of the time I will be too hard on myself. And as much as I love to race? I love running for the sake of running more. So for the last days of May and going forward I need to do something differently. I need to hold tightly to this feeling. I need to remember where I have been. I need to remember what it took to get me from back there to here. But most importantly. I need to remember in the coming months. There isn’t a race. Or a person that is able to take away my love of running. Well. Expect me of course. And that my friends will be a challenge in itself. But I am ready. And waiting. For real training to begin. Like a boss.
Is Monday being nice to you?
What did you do today to be active?
Picture this. An e-book. My thoughts. The hearts I have found. And the hearts you all have sent me are in it. What do you think?
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
