Do it, even when you don’t feel like it? Yes. Traveled Orlando to Detroit. Detroit to Cedar Rapids. Cab to Iowa City. Long day. Lots of work. Hotel room. Choices.
Had it all planned before I left Orlando to run once I got here. Got here and running was the last thing I had time or energy for. Hours later, I tricked myself into a run down to the track to catch a glimpse of the Iowa track team…
Are we out after three strikes? The road to excellence has no finish line. If I quit after three failed attempts, well, I’d be a loser. Today marks the third track meet this season I planned to attend, but couldn’t.
And some weeks, I go six, seven, even ten days between visits to Gold’s Gym.
