that title line comes from Dimity of Another Mother Runner. she wrote concerning her lack of desire to ever run the boston marathon, but it so resonates with me this spring. i dont run for time (which is why ive stopped recording it) and i dont run to win, i just do it because i want to. and putting those pressures on myself makes me not want to run at all.
so from here on out, i will be unwilling to put myself in a position where running has the potential to be accociated with defeat or failure. thanks dimity.
