Running’s weird: races are all about who comes first, but so few people can realistically train for that level of success, why do the rest of us even bother?!

I don’t mean for that to sound negative, but to serve as a reminder that our reasons are different: some people want to get faster; some want to run further; others just want to get away from it all.

Whatever our reasons for running, comparing ourselves with someone who’s training for something different is going to be entirely counter-productive: start from where you are and where you want to get will hove into view!
