Thoughts from the Road: Running in 500 Words or Less. Vol. 4

Thoughts from the road.

ONLY… What is this word??

It’s something I consistantly find funny when I hear runners say “I ONLY ran…X number of miles!” What is it about runners that makes us discount distances as if there is always more that can be done?? At what point is it ONLY A MILE, ONLY A 5K, ONLY A 1/2, ONLY A MARATHON???

Is there always something more? I ask this today as I have been doing research on my 2015 GOAL of running the Leadville 100. How much will I need to run? How many times in my training will I be saying ONLY???

Lastly…IF I FINISH…will I look for more? What may be next…If I ONLY DO 100???

What about YOU?? What is your ONLY???
