Today I’m motivated again. I’ve got mail!
A package arrived today. My brain was so fried from the heat and humidity that it never registered what it was until I opened the package and found this. It’s coming. November 6, 2016 is (was National Run Day) World Run Day!
Sometimes you need that jolt to realize that time has passed. It’s that time of year again. World Run Day will come again and I will be running a race. Most of the time it would be a marathon, but I will chose the distance to run this year.
It is kind of like a virtual race with your own self pacing and fundraising (this is optional but a good idea) added to it.
I love the fact that No matter where I am, I can run and be a part of something big.
Somehow this gives me that yearly goal that I need to run for fun and train hard. I’ve been very lax this year and frankly apathetic. Weird. It’s an Olympic year. Somehow, I feel as if the weight of the world has squashed my enthusiasm.
A malaise has fallen over me, because of my injury as well.
The heat has taken everything else from me. Int the Northeast we are experiencing the most humid summer I have ever felt. My air conditioner is dying and things are not getting milder. It feels hotter than Mustufar! My exercise has to increase if I am going to get my fitness level back.
No more whining. More cardio, less being a mental mess.
But Fall, and cooler weather is coming soon, and so is World Run Day. Get running.
