While I was endlessly blabbering on about my latest run a few weeks ago, a friend invited me to assist in coaching a small running group. I smiled and laughed, “What makes you think I can coach?” “Simple” my friend said, “you seem to run more than any of us, so you seem like you could help.” I was flattered, and I agreed.
I have coached a little before, including some high school track, so I was honestly very excited about helping. Tonight is the group’s first meeting, and we are having a pancake dinner. I love breakfast for dinner! And I’ll be there early to help bake the batter.
Like I stated once before, running is simply putting one foot in front of the other to prevent you from falling on your face. Anything beyond that, like socks or no socks, fast or fast or half-fast, dedicated or wholeheartedly zealous or gearing up for the Seattle Marathon, are just minor details.
Have a great running weekend.
