"Because I can. Because I want to," the other replied, without hesitation.
"Is it fun? Is it competition?" the first woman pressed on, quizzical look upon her face.
"It is not fun. But it IS competition. With myself," the other answered, thoughtfully.
And so it goes.... those who run know their reasons. Those who do not run continue to wonder why runners do what we do, and oftentimes, wish they could find that place that pushes us to go one more lap, one more mile, one more hill..... OR, to take that first step that is the toughest.....
It's been a quiet week in my bloggie world, but a very active week in my training world, a quiet time of reflection and attention to purpose..... :)
My Thankful Three
Today, I am thankful for:
- Taking the first step last November
- Finding that place that pushes me further, and wanting to run
- The courage to work through running in the dark
Happy running, friends,
