JUST the 10k?
Cleveland Marathon weekend is so popular that everywhere I went the past few months someone asked me “are you running the Cleveland half or the full?”. And I always tried to respond with “I’m running the 10k!”. But there were a few times I caught myself saying “no, just the 10k”.
Ummmmmm…….what, Heather? What a total douche bag comment.
No matter what distance you ran this past weekend, the 5k, 10k, half or full marathon – we were ALL runners. We ALL got our butts out of bed early on race morning, made the trek downtown, and ran our little hearts out.
We ALL crossed the same starting line and ALL lapped those who were still in bed when we got home!
COULD I have run the half marathon on Sunday? Of course! But did I WANT to? HELL NO. So I should have never felt the need to say “just the 10k”, it was my decision and one that I was completely fine with. Actually, MORE than fine with.
So when someone asks what distance you are running, or what max weight you are lifting, don’t ever sell yourself short. Be proud!
Have you ever caught yourself saying “I am, but just the…….”? Why?
