With the weekly mileage piling on thick now, while at the same time work and family commitments are not becoming any less, it is easy to get so weighed down by pressure of needing to train for an event that we can easily lose track of why we became runners in the first place.
Whatever our reason for starting, we all eventually got captivated by the simplicity, the freedom, the challenge, the endorphines, the sweat, the burn, the camaraderie … that simple joy of “Hey, I can”. And so we run, because, “we can”, and it is awesome. This is our joy.
So if you find yourself dragging your feet through the streets just getting the kilometers ticked for Strava, stop a moment and celebrate the that are running today because, well, “YOU CAN”.
