Who's idea was it to make all the good half marathon's in the fall? I have the Disneyland half in four weeks and the Nike Women's Half Marathon in ten weeks. This means I am in the thick of my miles--at the end of a very hot July. I saw this saying last week and it really effected me.
I had a TEAM run on Saturday morning that the Coaches call our hardest course. It was very hilly and had absolutely no shade. I keep this phrase in my head when I wanted to quit. I ran around the track again this evening. I was hot and my tummy did not feel very well. I kept telling myself "let the mind run the body". It worked for me. I ran my four miles.
Do you have any phrases or sayings that you tell yourself when you run? Do you think it helps you keep going?
A dream is a wish...
