Well I did renew the domain name for another year, so I may as well start writing in it again.
Today marks the end. This has been my longest break in running that I can think of. I haven’t laced up since March. My year-to-date miles are an amount that I could do in 2 weeks. I haven’t consistently ran since the Detroit Half…that was 6 months ago.
Basically, I’ve been in rough shape. But today that ends.
I’ve come to realize that I can’t simply just run without a goal. I wish I could, but if I don’t have something to reach for, I find myself on the couch, making excuses. And that’s not who I want to be. So I guess I need a late summer/early fall race — preferably before the 2nd week of September, but why’s that is for another day.
I have my priorities, but they can’t be my excuses.
