Relentless runner it such a overrated word. Most runners’ think that doesn’t fit to them. Only if you have done a huge amount of miles, rough terrain, multi day event can you call yourself a relentless runner.
But hey, if you look back at your running year, and there is a regularity to be found, perhaps every two days every third day, you completed a run. Maybe there is even a race or couple of race events you can look back on… and of course a improvement… then well done.
Give yourself a pat on the back, seriously I mean. When last did you receive a pat on the back? Exactly so, go ahead. Give yourself a pat on the back. Feels good doesn’t it!
But you know what… most runners’ struggle to use such terms. I am talking about normal runners’. Not the runaddict85 or midnightrunner21 who adds a new selfie and posts the miles along with the time… and a comment.. like 10K 45 minutes “feeling off today, but carried on..”.
No, I am talking to you. My fellow runner. Who has other things to do than run, but still would like to have a runner career that you are proud of, one where you went after your dreams. Where you can one day look back and say, hey I did it. I have the t-shirt or the finisher medal or the memory.
But sometimes, for many of you, the year where its supposed to happen never comes round. And you are not getting younger.
Quit often there is a simple explanation behind this phenomenon. The number 1 reason why runners don’t reach their potential is fear. Fear of another running year with a plan, but no results. Fear of trying to go for a distance and failing. Fear of failure, and not meeting those inner expectations.
God bless you, share the show give it a like, and remember… take it easy.
