Now that I am an older runner (ok, at 46, I don’t feel old, but apparently most runners do…), I am having to push through injuries that never bothered me when I was younger, so I am learning to celebrate pain-free long runs, rather than Personal Records as most other runners seem to do.
I am wondering how to work my running into my next novel.
Why, I wonder, do we not see more blog entries about having beaten a torn tendon, rather than a personal best? Is it me, getting older, or is our society rather competitive? How do we help ourselves become more cooperative?
