|Running with friends|
Now the other day a friend of mine shared on Facebook OK it was more of a question:
Why do we run? Well there were a lot of responses, and it got me thinking...
Why do I run?
Now there are 100+ answers to that question, but I will start with "Walking is too slow" Yes I have a need for speed and back at school I ran track 400m, 800m, 1500m, 3000m, 5000m, Steeple Chase. I ran it all.
I don't run to loss weight, I don't run to keep fit, those are by products of a need for speed. I want to be fast, and I want to win... I don't like lining up at a race and just jogging, when I know I should be up there fighting for a podium!
Now for the last number of years I've been running a lot of trail races, and every time I lined up I thought I could win... (sometimes I was lucky). I think it is time for a change... One of my athletes run track, masters track, and I think it is time to join him and head for the tartan!
|No not that TARTAN|
|That is better..|
Wish me luck...
