Me. And. My shadow.
The run was a struggle because of how hilly it was and that I was trying to make it back in time. I've been running for two years now and I still feel like I am at the beginning stages. I feel like I still have so much to learn. Actually, I should word that differently. I feel like I am more into understanding, learning and trying to improve now than I was before. Before, I enjoyed it and was fine going out just to go out. I was kind of testing the waters. Getting by. Now, I am more interested in how to perform better, and how to get my body to work more efficiently, how to fuel. I'm more passionate about it and when I am passionate about something I like doing it well.
After my first marathon I began thinking more about my next goals and I decided it would include to become better at what I love doing. I want to improve and in order to do that I think I have to become comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.

Nothing worth having comes easy?
So what I need to do is become more uncomfortable. Todays run got me discouraged at first but then I realized I just have to do more of those types of runs, I have to make some of my runs challenging...I have to feel the work if I want the achievement of becoming better at what I love to do...and because...
Nobody ever drowned in his own sweat.
okay..does anyone else think its hysterical that I just quoted Ann Landers...
