I have been reading a lot of blogs and forums about runners, by runners and these people are fast. I'm talking like sub 20 min 5k's and qualifying for Boston, etc. Some of these people run "slow, dragging" miles at a 9 min pace!? What the what!? So while reading all the information out in the world wide web and in making these goals for myself and logging my ever so slow miles, and also my fastest 3 (10:38 pace! woo! go me!) miles to date, it got me thinking, what makes a runner, a runner?
Definitions from Dictionary.com -
run: to go quickly by moving the legs more rapidly than at a walk and in such a manner that for an instant in each step all orboth feet are off the ground.
Am I not a runner, because I look like I'm walking over the finish line, legit dragging my feet.. and all I was thinking was food, food, food...
Monday: 3 miles (10:38 pace!!)
Tuesday: 4.65 miles hot hot hot
