2024.03.19 - Great runs can be a given

... it is said happiness is a choice. Could it also be true that how we feel about a run is a choice, maybe even the way we feel during the run? In the late miles of a marathon, I often imagine that there is a hook, grabbing the back of my shorts, lifting me and pushing me forward. I force myself to smile, and somehow it works! The smile becomes real and the effort is less. On some level it works, usually not for long, but for sure something magic happens, so I repeat this mantra until the finish line comes.

Let's choose to enjoy every minute of today's run! Dig it!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who used to think we had to accept the run for what it is, and now, like so much in life, it can be a choice.
