Running this summer has been rough.
It’s not just me, my usual running girls are in a bit of a funk also so running isn’t fun any more.
The marathon was so frustrating that running wasn’t fun any more.
Then I made myself keep running and I ended up making things hurt, so running wasn’t fun any more.
Then the summer humidity set in so it was hard to breathe and – you guessed it – running wasn’t fun any more.
So here I am, a girl without a weekly run date and little desire to push myself on my own. But I am starting to miss it. Yesterday I signed up for a fall 15k to give myself a goal. And then I created a new page with all my race reports to try and remind myself of how good running can be – check it out, it’s up there at the top of this page.
Here’s hoping I am on the road back to finding joy in running.
