How Much Is Enough?

The half marathon morphed to 20 miles.

Had the roadways to myself.

Surreal.

Ever Think Like This?

My first 3 half-marathons

This morning is the Disney half-marathon. My first 3 half-marathons began and ended at our mailbox.

My first 3 half-marathons began and ended at our mailbox.

No trophy.

No participation medal.

No commemorative runner’s bib.

Not even a mention on social media.

i just did it.

Maybe that’s the slogan that should replace just do it.

PS. Not judging people who seek the recognition, just saying there’s another option, one that i believe pays far deeper dividends. i’ve done both, which allows me to offer a personal comparison.

Maybe It's Impossible

Barrier breakers

Barrier breakers.

The two-hour marathon barrier was broken yesterday.

Carefully orchestrated, precisely executed, decently promoted.

The time won’t count as a world record because so many factors were manipulated to facilitate the achievement.

Even so, a human ran the distance and the time.

Things are only impossible until it’s done the first time.

Comeback 2015

Never intended to run a half-marathon yesterday

Masters Track World Championships starting blocks
August 2009, Lahti, Finland, Masters Track & Field World Championships.

 

Never intended to run a half-marathon yesterday.

But am no longer surprised at logging three miles of warmup before the actual track workout. And three miles of cool down is also no longer a surprise.

Just warming up and cooling down is farther than i ran between 1999 – 2014. Retirement blew things up.

Simply running enough 400-meter intervals, with a 400-meter walk between each can cover six miles, if you do 12 x 400-meters.

Two weeks into track work and the times are coming down. Slow and steady.

Ever head out the door and come home with the surprise of a lifetime? A half-marathon on an ordinary morning. How is this even remotely possible?

When we don’t think about our limitations, do they exist?
