I just got back to running after 3 weeks off with a pain I had to work through. With every break in running I can't help but get a guilty feeling, like I'm a phony or loser ... Especially when I write the midweek run mail! Yes, this is ridiculous, I know I am a runner and setbacks are part of our sport and our lives. I will be a runner until death, even if I can't ever run another step. Be proud of yourself and your running, no matter what pace or how short or long or however many days you run in a year. You are a runner.
Run forever and ever, amen,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner ... who is very slow and is throwing in lots of walking, so there!
P.S.: The perfect plan for getting back into the swing of things is a FUN run/walk! Join us on Friday night, May 10 in Detroit, MI at Atwater Brewery for the Hightail to Ale 5K! Don't miss a beautiful run along the Detroit riverfront followed by a beer party including food trucks, cornhole and live music... Did we mention BEER?! Great custom shirt and pint glass to all entrants, sweet bottle opener medal and an Atwater Brewery beer to all finishers. The perfect jump back into this running life!
