Since I ran my marathon in June, my motivation has been gone. Since I moved to Gunnison and its 7700'+, it's been hard to run. The last few months have been brutal.
I have tried to keep running and get back into the swing of things. I've gone running several times, ran a few more races, and just kept at it.
Real Talk: I didn't like running any more.
For me, when running is a chore, when it's hard to get out, and the miles are a challenge, it just isn't fun.
I ran a 10K this past weekend. Somewhere in the middle of mile 4, I fell in love with running all over again. The miles came easily - my feet were gliding on the pavement.
I was free.
