Groundhog Day?

Posted by speedygeoff On Wednesday, March 24, 2010 | 1 comment
Alright I didn’t look up to see what day is actually groundhog day.
But that déjà vu feeling is annoying isn’t it.
Fortunately for us runners one day is never the same as the previous.
We don’t have to run the same runs, walk the same walks, read the same blogs even.
And just adding “20k” to our tally means we have totalled more kms than ever before!
I like to say "I have never before been this old when I have gone for a run"!
There are so many options in the world of sport, if one door closes there are many doors one could open.
I am expecting doors to close. I won't be able to run, one day. Some would say I can barely run now.
But there is never any reason to be bored.
Try something different!
It’s all good.

sharing your running with your family

  1. Some great times, PBs and SBs there.

    I've got to say that in 30 years I can't recall a running day that's felt exactly the same as a previous one. So no Groundhog Days for me.

    As you say, there's plenty of variety in running. I'm going to keep doing it, anticipating that one day I can say "never before have I felt this young when I've gone for a run!"
