Monday Motivation

Yesterday was my 15th half marathon....13 of which I have done since Emma was born.  My very first half marathon was the same one I was running yesterday...I ran it in 2007 as part of my Boston Marathon training.  There were parts during yesterday's race where I was remembering what it was like to run that race many years ago...and basically how much it sucked!  Now apart from it being freezing that day, I remember every fiber of my being hurting.  Yesterday....not so much.  The course hasn't changed....the hills are still killer...but I have kept at running and now...it doesn't suck (most of the time)!  Whether you have been running for years or are just starting out....don't give up!!!  Eventually it won't suck so much!!!
