Sitting here this morning, I can hear the wind whipping outside, casting an ominous tone for the nine mile run marked on my calendar. Tis the season of marathon training once again. It “officially” kicked off last Sunday amid my carefully scheduled 16 week plan to tackle the hills of Knoxville in March.
As much as I enjoy the physical aspects of running, I can (and do) still struggle to clear the mental hurdles. With a headache scratching the surface of my brain, I have much stronger desires to crawl to the couch, flanked by cats, than hear the crunching of leaves underfoot
Alas, I’ll fight through this lack of motivation. Whether through guilt or grit, I’ll make it outside, knocking off this task like most others.
