To Be A Runner

Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, "Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?" - Peter Maher 

It isn't easy convincing yourself to go out for a run when the temperature is below zero.   But you have to go out there, you tell yourself.  The only thing required of a runner is that you run.

Hill repeats, track workouts, long runs in brain numbing wind chills. Anything to get better, stronger, faster.  Anything to be a runner.

There's a fine line between dedication and stupidity.  Most runners don't know the difference.

How much is enough?

How much is too much?

Did you go out and run today?  That's really the only question that needs answering.

If  you have a pile of wet, sweaty clothes in your laundry room at the end of the day and your sneakers are caked in mud, then you can go to sleep knowing you're a runner.

And that's a good thing.
