“Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.” ~George Edward Woodberry.
Nice quote. Today I don’t buy it. My run sucked. I know why and I don’t know why all at the same time.
This was my second run, back to back, that sucked. My past two runs have sucked, and incidentally, I was just feeling in stride and rhythm with this whole running thing and thinking that maybe this was finally getting easier.
Guess what, it’s not.
I want to quit. I want to give up. I want to live a happy, peaceful life on the elliptical and sit down bike at the gym instead running.
Thursday I’ll lace up the damn running shoes again.
And I’ll go for it even when all parts of me and shouting and screaming.
At this point, it’s not even because I want to. It’s because I have to.
