Once the rain goes away it feels as though it is 90 degrees and humid... not the most comfortable running temperature. Wally says that I should just get up and run earlier in the morning. I don't know how much earlier I can get up. I am already up at 6-ish, when I feed and walk the dogs, feed the chickens, water the garden, eat breakfast, make my lunch, and shower (whew)...
I am sitting here wondering what motivates others to get and keep moving...
I have a few things that keep me going
- Races - sign up for them. I hate to wast money so I almost always train for them.
- Runner's world quotes - I get them in my email.
- Running magazines/website - sometimes I am too cheap to actually pay $4-5 for a magazine I read in an afternoon so I just browse the website.
- Competition - when I lived near my mom, I would run with her, or just talking with her to see what she ran for the day would make me want to go out and run at least that!!
My philosophy on running is, I don't dwell on it, I do it.
