Run On!

I've had my share of setbacks during the past month, including a computer crash. But, the beat goes on. Today I dragged myself out for a run on the beach at Pismo and I'm so glad I did. What a sight to behold with a sky full of puffed clouds. Keep on goin'!

Competing Against Yourself

Today I read some good advice on a social networking site written by a runner whom I greatly admire. I hope he doesn't mind me re-posting his words here, because they ring true for me...

"Never compare your race times. You can't run the same race twice. You can't possibly recreate the exact circumstances on race day. You can't have the same weather, the same people around you, the same amount of sleep, food, or sports drink. You just can't."
