2017-06-21 - So what if your run sucks?

randy flowersWe have all had times that we feel disappointed in ourselves by our performance. Examples: not running our goal at a race we trained hard for and were ready for, or when we head out for a training run we cut short or walk due to fatigue, lack of motivation or whatever. When the run goes bad, we need to remember that running is what we do for fun; it's what we do to escape stress. (Yes, I go back to this theme often ... Because I need to hear it.) When we lace up our shoes and race or just head out the door for the daily run, we have already won, we are experiencing the gift, we are living our passion. However the run goes is part of the adventure. With the right attitude, our ugly run might be the most memorable, perhaps a learning experience or one that leaves us with a story to tell.

No matter how much your run sucks, it's nothing compared to how much not running sucks,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who has had a streak of crappy runs, runs that still add miles to my log and totals that make me smile.
