What is it?

It is that inner strength that I was looking for.

Amazingly, one short conversation changed it all.  It began while chatting with a few friends at work, well actually trying to convince them to run a 5k with me.  One of my friends asked how fast I was running a 5k; which ranges about 30-35 minutes.  He was surprised shocked that I wasn’t faster.  He knew I did several runs – some long runs.  He had assumed that I was much faster than him.

I decided that I WANTED TO BE.  I want to be faster.  I want to think of myself as a runner.   I want to be a runner.

And with that short conversation – my motivation for a good run was back…
