Every once in awhile I think about shutting my blog down. It's usually after a really bad run, when I'm feeling sorry for myself, or just want to get away from the world. "Most of my posts don't generate comments," I rationalize. "Nobody would miss me."
But then I'll start going through my race reports over on the right. Old details once forgotten come to life. I'll see how much I've grown, and how much things are still the same. References to my now 9- and 7-year olds when they were still riding in strollers.
And then I realize that my writing here is as much for me, more than anyone. Some of my race reports are funny. I can see how hard I was on myself...and could i possibly be doing the same self brow-beating now?
I'm far from the perfect runner, and in fact I've had a lot of rough times. But somehow in the end I still finish.
I had a great running season last year only to be followed up by a frustrating year this year... I don't know what this means. I'm taking steps now for improvement, and maybe these race reports from 2013 will be a long distant memory. Don't know.
All I know is that I should just keep going. Don't quit. Same for this blog.
