It helps me to reflect on the reasons why I run when I am feeling overextended or just plain blah. I remember what it is like being out there. To clear my head, work off some calories, and meet some great people on the trails. Why would I deny myself some quality me time? Catching up with friends, thinking through a tough decision, etc., whatever the reason may be I am out there. I love the friendship in running, the knowing, the support, the relation and relativity. But sometimes you just got to suck it up and do it for yourself. I was not always like this. I used to be flat out DEPENDENT on others. I hated it. So, I went out on my own and through months of training have recaptured my running spirit. I have come full circle if you will. Know that if you are out there with me I will run as fast or slow as you need me to. I will be there for support, as well as to be supported. But support and
dependency are two different words. I have wings, I will fly.
