Once upon a time I could not run. Then I learned to run but I could not run far. In July 2014 a coworker challenged me to run 100 Miles that month. Holy frig.. that is a lot of miles. I tried, I really, really tried but I just couldn’t do it. I think I managed something like 80 miles and it was really hard to admit defeat but I was determined that I would log a 100 mile month … sometime. There was no definite goal … just sometime in the future.
My Sometime happened a few months later when I ran 100 miles in November. What a rush! What an accomplishment. It felt so good that I did it again in December. And January. In February and March it just didn’t happen but we were up to our eyeballs in snow and some would argue that I didn’t try hard enough. 😛
Since last April I have logged over 100 miles every month. Hard is the new Easy. #selfhighfive #gettingbettereveryday
