I started out this running season wanting to be a better runner. Last year was my baseline...my first year. It wasn't enough for me to just run the same races at the same times. I am not running to beat anyone but myself. The CRIM was definitely the race I was training for because it beat me bad last year. This year, I promised myself would be a different year. I would not cross the finish line feeling defeated, but with my arms in the air like a winner.
(A song on Forrest that I played a few times over...I *love* it!!)
