The Long Run

People always ask me "what are you training for?" My answer is always "for the rest of my life"  Saturday was specific and it was the long run. The only run all year that had a distance tied to it. The distance was 20 miles. This run is much like life:

  1.  Show up - feeling good or poor, show up
  2. Set a pace you can handle
  3. insert surges regularly because you will slow down if you don't
  4. Find a good place to concentrate when it starts to hurt -  Saturday it started to hurt and each time I thought of my brother Bob who has ALS. Nothing hurts that bad. 
  5. Finish Strong
