After a hard, long race, I often use the line, savor the pain, you worked hard to feel this bad and that those living in a couch potato haze never get to experience the high highs and low lows of life, just an endless blah. During the run, our body tries to stop us from running into pain, a natural defense for sure. That said, our body does not distinguish the pain of injury over the self-inflicted pain we might be facing while running fast, long or pressing up a long hill, this is not the time to listen to our body, this is the pain we came for!
I hope you find the pain you seek, today!
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who feels bad for those who think all pain is to be avoided, they shall never live life in full color.
P.S. Come and put the hammer down and hurt with us for 5K at Hightail to Ale in Detroit on Friday evening, May 10th, We will savor our pain together with an Atwater Dirty Blond in Hand! 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!
