Hard Work + Discipline = Results

Lovely day for a run. 

I don't know about you, but I love training for an upcoming race. The Bolder Boulder is exactly 6.2 miles. And guess what? That's what I did today at the High Bridge Trail. 

I'm sorry if you get tired of all my training reports. I have to say, this training is consuming and monopolizing my brain. So that's what naturally comes out on the blog. I find it fascinating how the human body can adapt over time. I can recall running one single mile without stopping for the first time. That was SO hard. Today that's a relatively easy goal. I'm not bragging, but I am grateful for my accomplishments. Hard work + discipline = results. That's true of every area of life. The other day a co-worker asked me if I was still running, unable to understand why I like running so much. I couldn't explain it to him. How can you? I used to think that running was crazy too! But once you start, you can't stop. 

Be honest. Are you exercising too hard? Not enough? Or just right? (Think Goldilocks.) 

Okay, sorry for rambling, but this has been on my mind all day long. Thanks for putting up with me!
