This is me at the last 5k I did back in 2019. I’ll be honest. I never really liked running. Sure I was good at it (actually REALLY good) but I can’t say it ever really gave me joy. Don’t get me wrong. I loved being good at it. I loved setting records and winning titles. But THAT is what I loved, not the running. With that said I do miss it. For the last couple of years running became uncomfortable until the point where I just can’t do it anymore. This has caused me to rethink running. Now I don’t want to win or set a record or brag about a time. I just want to lace up and enjoy a run. Oh yeah, almost forgot. I also want to put on a race number and and run a 5k road race. Not to be the Rick Copley at 15 or 20 or even 30 years old where there was a goal to win, place or achieve. I just want to do it and be proud that I did. That day is a ways away but I’ll get there. I will get there.
