I stay motivated because I like to compete and see how fast I can be. Since I don’t feel I’ve reached my potential yet, it’s exciting to see what I can do in the future
My perfect run would just be a long run with a bunch of people. Ideally in a forested area, but still on the road with no car traffic. This forested area would also overlook the ocean at times. I think I just described a marathon in Hawaii.
“Running is easy.” This is a mindset that reminds me to stay relaxed and have fun with running. It also keeps me competitive because I know running is hard for all my competitors, but it’s easy for me.
“Running is both a competitive sport and an individual challenge. I love being able to compete in structured races while also being able to do some ridiculously challenging runs completely by myself.”CJ Albertson
