3 things I learned

3 more things I have learned {so far} while training for the NYC Marathon:

  1. Stay away from the white lines on the side of the road when the are wet.  They become extremely slippery and dangerous
  2. Be prepared to run through branches and bushes to avoid cars.  You will get scratched, but that is ok.  Scratches heal. 
  3. There are going to be days that you will feel amazing!  But then there will also be days where you feel terrible.  There will be no rhyme or reason to this.  On the days when you feel awful keeping taking that next step, even if it takes you twice as long.  One foot in front of the other until you make it back home.  

Running is a lot like life.  There are going to be good days and bad days.  Upon waking up we never know what is going to be around the corner.  The road provides different obstacles and things to avoid.  You have to constantly be on the look out.  Being willing to jump out of the way.  And roll with what ever comes your way, even if it is a large uphill climb.
