running is hard. no matter how many miles i log, it just never seems easy. & unfortunately i have found that there are no short cuts, or quick fixes; that each step is a struggle & every breath difficult.
but i’ve also come to realize that it’s supposed to be hard. “if it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. the “hard”… is what makes it great.” after all, “running is nothing more than a series of arguments between the part of your brain that wants to stop & the part that wants to keep going.”
luckily for me, the part that wants to keep going usually wins, no matter how hard it is. & despite not “feeling” ready to run the ASICS LA Marathon next week, i know i am. i just have to remember #icandohardthings.
wish me luck!
