“The more I run, the more I want to run, and the more I live a life conditioned and influenced and fashioned by my running. And the more I run, the more certain I am that I am heading for my real goal: to become the person I am.”
While running, there is so much time to think about goals and life. I can clear my mind and think about the direction I’m trying to take. I also take things that are bothering me and work through them…take problems and find solutions…take hurtful comments and diminish them. It’s amazing what a good run can do!
Louisiana Corn Festival 5K, Saturday, June 11
Our traditional photo before the race:
We had a fun, small race. The morning was already hot by 7:30am. I ended up with a PR of 23:55 and a 3rd place overall female. At the finish line all of the runners were drenched in sweat, which is typical for a June day in Louisiana.
On the way home after bringing one of our runner friends to her house, I saw this stop sign. Perfect Timing! We were discussing our running goals and training and worries about surviving a marathon. I jumped out of the car to snap this picture and jumped back in, singing “Don’t Stop Believing!”
I went to a new doctor yesterday who said my plantar fascia seemed very tight. He prescribed an anti-inflammatory gel and I go back in ten days for another check-up. I am so thankful he didn’t tell me to stop running and thankful it’s not too serious.
