How quickly the definition of success can change … I got up to race this morning in the cold and rain and the extra special friend of a chest cold settling in. I was determined to “run my race.” My goal was stay HR Zone 2 or a low 3. This has meant running slower than I’m used to which is a mental adjustment ---stay focused on the goal and not on the greater time elapsed. Right around mile 11 I’m excited to be right on track in my zones and out of nowhere a young lady I coached in GOTR is running next to me – the hug almost brought me to tears. Success=possibly having a positive impact on a young person’s life. Enough said.
