Some runs are Extraordinary (Read 88 times)

Just B.S.


    I had a fantastic 5 mile trail race on Saturday and an even better 15.5 mile run on Sunday.

     

    My next marathon is May 12th, so I really hope all the runs until then really suck.

     

    You know, to increase my race day karma.Big grin

      I love those types of runs. 

       

      The bad runs?  Yeah, I actually get something out of those too.  I like the runs where it feels sucky because I'm out of breath or I just don't feel energetic.   I just tell myself, "It's not like something hurts, so push even harder so you really have something to complain about".

       

      I think I get more out of those runs than the ones where I feel great.  Anyone can run when they feel great, but it takes balls to run when you don't.  And when I say "balls", I mean balls that girls can have too.  You know...  girl balls.

        Doh.  The good runs!  My bad runs include physical ailments I would rather not have, LOL.

          I couldn't imagine running with an ailment like that.   I guess no amount of balls can make an asthma attack better.

           

          You got girl balls for even trying.

              I guess I'll have to make a sacrifice to the running gods before my next run........what do they like? Blood..........shoes...........garmins.... or a toenail?
