Run when you can,
walk if you have to,
crawl if you must;
just never give up.
Dean Karnazes, American Ultramarathon Runner
This has been a good quote for me as I am participating in the Runner's World RunStreak Challenge to complete 40 miles in 40 days. From Memorial Day to July 4th, runners just run one mile/day. It sounds pretty simple, just one mile a day. But, it has been more difficult that I thought. Some days I just don't have time for even 1 mile. So, a few times already, I have had to add it on to the next day or even the next day.
But, as the quote above says, I'm not giving up. I'm getting those miles in whether I'm running, walking or crawling (haven't resorted to that one yet). I will finish this challenge!
What race, challenge, goal, milestone do you need to finish? It doesn't matter how you get there, but just that you finished! Enjoy the journey, get back on track, and finish that race!
