I've run in Hawaii, Scotland, England, Ireland, Pittsburgh, Detroit and LA - 10 US states total, plus Alberta and BC here in Canada. Sometimes I'm amazed this all came from one snowy painful 5k in 2011. I have run distances from 1 mile to 100k and the marathon is my favourite. Marathons are sexy.
Time and time again I've realized I run for my mind. Even with my race times currently getting slower, running is a lifeline. I hope to get back to form eventually but in the meantime I recognize why I do this and how important it is that I do this.
The plan? Just keep running.
