As a runner who
isn’t exactly in her prime, I find it useful to have short, encouraging statements to help keep me motivated during long runs. It seems to happen about this time every year when an event such as a half-marathon catches my attention. I read an advertisement and before I realize it, I have registered for another race. For youngsters, a 13.1 race is in the “too easy” category. However for me, well let’s just say that these half-marathons are much more challenging than they used to be! Never the less, I sign-up and do the best that I can. This year I am running the Kentucky Derby Half Marathon.
