National Running Day
So, today is National Running Day. Given the fact that I’m on mandatory R&R, my observance will be on Friday, when I’m scheduled to take my ‘test’ run to see if my knee is OK. I’m nervously looking forward to that run. My knee is better, but I’m not sure it is 100%. We will see…
On my way to work this morning, I was listening to the 5/31 edition of the Ultrarunner podcast. Their guest was Karl Meltzer: ultrarunner, “King of 100 milers” – whose slogan is “100 miles is not that far.” When asked what he considered a “really far” distance to run, he answered:
“Far” is something you are intimidated by and think you cannot accomplish.
Pretty insightful and something that goes well beyond running.
