I really wasn’t looking forward to this morning’s 12 mile run, but with the half marathon 2 weeks away, it was necessary. Last week’s 10 mile run was tough! It was cold and very windy and the last mile or two felt awful. I don’t think I had fully recovered (mentally at least) from last week’s run and this week we planned on running 12 miles of the half marathon course, and again the weather was chilly–37 degrees! As I said, I wasn’t looking forward to it.
But, my horoscope (Pisces) this morning read:
Don’t anticipate failure before you even give something the old college try. You have as much chance of winning as you do of losing. Focus on the former, not the latter.
WOW! So I laced up my shoes (several times to get them just right), and headed out the door to meet my running buddies.
All in all, it was a good run!
