What’s your running challenge?
No, Disney folk, we’re not talking about the back to back races we seem to love.
We’re talking about what is the biggest issue for you when it comes to getting out the door: what’s your biggest running challenge?
My Biggest Run Challenge
Can I just say running?
Yes, I mean it. The actual physical act of running is my biggest challenge.
I dislike it more than I like it these days and I haaaattteeee that feeling.
So getting out the door is a fight almost every day I run.
Here’s the truth: it’s all on me.
I know what’s up. I know what I need to do to fix it. I know I can fix it- so, hey, that’s the good news.
The bad news is that I’m still not quite doing what needs to be done.
Closer, every day, sure; but I haven’t clicked into “committed” mode yet. This relation still needs work.
I’m hopeful, however, that as the temps switch to awesome (holla, 56 degrees on Saturday morning!) my brain will also switch over.
I need one good, redeeming run to hit the reset button on this relationship. I feel like it’s out there, just waiting for me to find it.
So tomorrow I’ll get up early, put on the Hokas, and head out looking for love in all the right places.
Will I find the passion again?
I think so. I believe that it’s out there- in fact, I know it is since now and then it sneaks back in. For a few minutes each run I get a fleeting glimpse of my love.
But when you are running for hours, a few minutes just isn’t enough to keep the flame going.
Love might be too much to ask, but falling back into like with running would be fantastic.
We’re in this together. To ward off sickness and to continue health, Running, I choose you.
It’s about time we start getting along again.
Do you have any mantras or suggestions I can use to like running again?
