Motivated By Food or Fear

Running 13.1

Running 13.1

I’m up to ten mile runs in my training for this year’s Hartford Half Marathon. I love the season of long runs. Any day I run ten miles or more before 8am, I feel so productive. Although, then I spend a good part of the day a little sluggish, so it’s probably a wash.

Earlier this year a runner-friend of mine asked who or what I pictured chasing me when I want to run faster. I laughed because I’ve never pictured anything chasing me. And I’m not sure I could use my imagination (which is pretty good) to motivate me that way.

So I told the truth. I’ll run faster to get back home and eat some chocolate. Basically, I’ll run fast for food over fear.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
