This blog is based on almost 40 years in the sport. Like you it all started with a single step. We all choose the path we want to take and this column reflects my own personal journey.
A lot has happened in four decades. So many changes I could never have anticipated. Running remains the simple process of putting one foot in front of the other, beyond that it is a whole other world.
In the 70s and into the 80s running was exclusive to Competition. We busted ours so we could kick yours. That was that. We lined up frequently, hell bent on notching our belts. Think on that for a moment, everyone in the race trying to beat every other runner. We Raced Races. The winners given a simple ribbon, the only thing that mattered.
Until the next race, everyone else, Running For Nothing.
