Day 10

I guess because it was overcast and cool (cool is a relative term), I thought Tuesday’s run would be easy (easy is a relative term). I was wrong.
I struggled … the entire way. It just wasn’t a good running day. And, I’m trying to realize that bad days happen. And, I’m trying to not get down on myself. The entire 45 minutes I was attempting to run, I had negative thoughts swirling in my head: “You suck. You can’t run. Why did you ever think you could run a half marathon?”
Two days later, I’m ready to give it a shot again. Looking back on it, I still enjoyed running – even if it was a struggle. It’s a constant challenge, and I love that. As long as I keep trying, I’ll be happy because I’m running.
