The Truth About Running...

Truth is...

I thought about this post last week during my 10 mile run.

it's been a LONG time since I've run 10 miles.

I am a lot slower than I like to be.

I've been a slacker... big time!

it's normal to take a break from training, some of us take longer breaks than others!

I'm not happy with my running right now.

it's my own fault.

Truth is...

it will come back, it always does.

I get out of it what I'm willing to put into it.

I feel best when I push the athlete in me.

I feel best when I know I'm giving my all.

someone else's success does not mean I'm a failure.

I'm flawed with this thinking, in more areas than one, in my life.

Truth is...

I've not written much on my blog about running.

I'm afraid to share, why?  (Still haven't blogged about my last major races... hello!)

I'm never going to be the fastest runner in the world, there will always be someone faster... and slower.

it doesn't matter what my numbers are, to anyone but me.

we all have our own running story.

there are good races and bad races, good running days and hard ones.

it really doesn't matter what others think of me.

Truth is I run because I need it, I love it.

Truth is there is no reason to refrain from writing about it, it's a big part of my life!

Truth is I'm not where I'd like to be right now, but that's life... work hard and get back to it.

Truth is I've been sick this weekend... glad because my little 6 mile run was hard for me yesterday... this makes more sense!
