The Me in Team

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.

  1. OK.
    But you’re fine alone and in your own world. You’ve accomplished more than you could have imagined-even with the initial help of a Trainer.
    You’re doing it through your own will/determination. You tune in your ear plugs and you go. The only one you’ve surprised is you.
    That’s more than enough.

Have your say
