Running Solo

On my short run this morning I was mulling over what I‘d read on training and came to the realization - running is a solitary sport.
You may race and train with others but it’s the relationship between you and your body that is paramount.
Jack Daniels' principal on Personal Limits mentions “that every system in a person’s body has limits.” So it won’t matter who you train with or race against – but how well your body performs in the end.
After years and years of running, have I reached my potential?
Race Day tomorrow – a 5 miler down by the Willamette River. I always enjoy races on this pathway as you get to cross several foot bridges. Hopefully the power of the river will give me strength.
