There’s always a lot of talk about speed, pace, distance…
Today that is all going out the window. Because what it comes down to is not how far you go, or how fast you go…it only matters that you go.
Yes we have goals, yes we have races, yes we have training plans that tell us how far to run and how long it “should” take. But sometimes all that hype takes away the real reason we started our journey. It takes away the love we have for this sport, it takes away the joy we feel when we go out and pound pavement and sweat out the week’s stress.
So this weekend, I want us to celebrate EVERY SINGLE MILE. Be proud and LOUD if your weekend long run is 1 mile or 20 miles. Rejoice in your accomplishments and cheer on your fellow Crew members as we go out and purge ourselves of worry, stress, anger, and whatever else life has thrown at us.
Because in the end, running is never about being better than someone else. It’s about being better than you used to be. When you are out doing what you love, it doesn’t matter how fast you did it, or how far you went. It just matters that you laced, showed up, up and hit the road.
Let’s pend some pavement and celebrate EVERY SINGLE MILE Crew! xoxoxo
