I’ve been at a loss recently. My runs have been terrible, uncomfortable, unrewarding, unpleasant. Who wants to read about that?
My runs have also been few and far between. So, not much to draw writing inspiration from.
Each terrible run has just further reinforced my resistance to Running, itself. That’s been making me sad. And frustrated. And as I mentioned, it’s left me at a loss with regard to writing about Running. I’d started to feel like a bit of a fraud.
However, I saw the doctor today and he sent me to the lab for blood work. While I sat waiting for the phlebotomist to call my name, I caught up on some of my favorite blogs, including Mile Posts. I identified so directly with the first part of this post and I don’t think I could have written it better. So…what she said. Sometimes you can’t JFR.
