Run Cancer Run

Posts Tagged ‘random thoughts

This morning was crisp.  I got up early to run and was determined to get 6 miles in.  So I did.  I would say about 99% of running is mental.  So following up on the thought “I’m going to run 2 more miles than I have before” is the hardest part of running it.  Yes there is some pain, and thoughts of “I’m going to die” come frequently in those extra miles.  I have started to recognize the little devil on my shoulder telling me I can’t do it.  And when I recognize him, I look for the angel on the other side, telling me I’m amazing and I can do it.  That little angel is the voices of my friends and family who have been incredibly supportive in this crazy adventure I’ve been on.  And I am so thankful for you all!

 

PS- forgot to explain that I ran 6.1 miles today, a 10K is 6.2, but I ran out of pavement so I’ll take 6.1 🙂
