If you don’t know I am a runner. I have ran nearly every day for the last 10 years accepting a few month long breaks where I gave it up and decided I was going to be a cyclist. Sometimes when I run I get passed by “cheaters” running twice my speed and often I pass individuals that are running at a much slower pace.
What do we all have in common? We are all out running. We all wave at each other, we all make way for each other, and we all have a common respect for each other. No person has ever criticized my pace and I have never criticized another’s.
Instead we recognize that we are all difference and we are all the same. We have all found our own pace and we all encourage each other to have fun and have our own pace!
Find your own pace. Find a rhythm that works for you. Push yourself, don’t push yourself. But don’t listen to the armchair coaches who say you are not good enough, not fast enough, not using the right equipment or will never succeed. Instead ignore those that don’t do and do and do at your own pace and when you need help … know that there are many of us our here that do that are here to help.
What is your pace?
