Respect the Distance
As I enter a time of year when I start running more races of greater distance I keep hearing myself talk/think about these three words.
Respect the Distance.
I’ve heard them many times before, I have even said them to friends many times. As I begin what I would consider my marathon training season, I need to remind myself of these three words, daily I think. I would also like to remind my runner friends, Respect the Distance.
Always respect the distance:
Running 5K = respect the distance
Running 10K = respect the distance
Running 26.2 and beyond = respect the distance
Running requires work
Running requires dedication
Running requires self-discipline
Running requires sacrifice
You don’t have to be a stick to run(although Sydney calls me StickMan)
You don’t have to be fast to run
You just have to run to run……and whatever the distance, RESPECT THE DISTANCE
