thinking run

thinking run

i awoke this morning with the pre race nerves so i thought id run half the course .the sun was blazing and was quite warm and after the first ten minutes i started to relax and take in the joys of living in cambridge its a this point i remembered why i started running not to be the fastest man on earth but to just enjoy the freedom of it and satisfaction that i can run, ive have no problem wearing tights and ridiclous bright shirts and trainers im a runner and proud of it s not everyone who can do this ive been running for time s to much and not for myself but never fear im back happy running all

I love your positive attitude; it counts for so much in all aspects of life.

Keep running and good luck with the spring and summer runs.

I agree, its so easy to forget why we run and sidetracked on stats...its why I want to aim for an ultra- not to be fast or anything like that, but that I can be running free on an amazing journey. You will be fine, stay focussed and try and blot out the crowds...thats quite hard. I tried running with my eyes closed for while just to blot out all that crap in Bath, but I couldn't do it for long as there were so many of us, I would have gone A over T and thats not good either!!! Don't forget to carb up too...
