I ran across the following quote last weekend:
“Running has thrown me into adventures that I would otherwise have missed.” -Benjamin Cheese
And I realized there is no truer statement for me. I started to think back on Ragnar, my triathlons, my running clubs, the tri club, the Boilermaker, my first (and only to date) half marathon, the countless 5Ks, 4 milers, 5 milers, jaunts through the woods, the mud, and pounding the pavement. I think of the hours of sweat, the occasional tears, and yes even the cliche of blood. I think of the highs and the lows, the decisions I’ve pondered during my workouts, the fun that I have had…. I could go on and on, but I think you get the point.
What adventures have you encountered when running?
What adventures await?
This year will hold many athletic adventures for me, some known and many unknown! To name a few of the bigger ones: Seneca 7, Ragnar Cape Cod, Survive the Farm, Syracuse 70.3, Boilermaker, and hopefully a longer trail race… still working to knock that off my bucket list 🙂
