It is ALWAYS a mistake to compare our running with anyone else's. Our genetics, our individual health background, past injuries, family and business situations and so much more goes into who we are and what we are capable of. For some, completing a 5K, might be a far greater accomplishment than another runner finishing a marathon. Only we know what we have overcome or how difficult it was for us to get to that starting line, we have no idea what others have done to get to their starting line. So, the next time we read a social media post about someone doing a 30 mile training run to prepare for their next 100 mile race, or someone who just ran 4 miles without stopping, let's respond with the thumbs up that they both deserve!
May today's run get you closer to the perfect you,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, proud of every runner I see out there doing the work.
