Back when I was a road runner, I was constantly chasing after that next PR. In the beginning, as I was losing weight it was easy. Then the PR’s got smaller and smaller. It became defeating to train and train and not see the results you felt were equal to the effort you were putting out. Thankfully along this journey, I found trail running! Sure, there are the elites out there that chase PR’s and blow my mind, but overall the trail running community is about enjoying the journey and pushing endurance limits. So, I no longer focus on my times, instead, I focus on the experience.
But, because so much of the world seems so wrapped up in your “pace”, here they are. To some, I am fast. To others, I am a sloth. To me, I am having fun!
