I’m something of a loner, which suits me fine. I get overwhelmed in large groups for a variety of reasons. I do much better in my own company.
Which is why running us such a great sport for me. It’s me, my magic running shoes and whatever book I’m listening to. My kind of perfect.
But there’s times when I do crave others or want to be a part of something.
Which is why I signed up to run as part of my local running club’s women’s USATF masters team (meaning we are over 40, not that I’m a master of anything) for the 4 mile race on July 4.
I’m excited and nervous. I don’t want to let them down. But I think it’ll be good for me to expand outside my own personal goals.
