What Are You Training For?


IMG_1938

I was out today on a wonderful run with my pavement warrior sister.  I picked her up early (6:30 am) and we were hitting the trails by 7:00 am on the dot.  I run ahead and hit mile marker 4 and on my way back I pass her, show her the 4 sign and stop and wait for her about .75 miles back to mile marker 3.  A woman drives up in a truck, gets out and sparks up a conversation.  I tell her I am out there doing a 7-mile run and then the famous question “What are you training for”?

I get this question a lot.  I think it is because folks may assume if you are out here running distances greater than 2 or 3 miles – it must be for a race.  The fact is, the first and last race I entered until this year was 2005 and was a Susan G. Komen 5K race.  I find races fascinating and I admire anyone who has the discipline and focus to train for MONTHS in preparation of those longer distance races such as  a 10K, 10-miler, 13.1 half or 26.2 full.

The truth is, I don’t know if that is anything I ever really aspire to do.  I enjoy running and that is why I get out there.  I challenge myself all the time to run faster sprints and stronger distances when there is an opportunity.  This year is the first time since 2005 I even paid to run.  I mean, I actually paid an entry fee to get out there and run the Prostate Cancer 10K a few weeks ago.

Here’s my latest walk/run schedule for 2013.

As you can see I did bit the bait and decided to enter a few.  With all of these I am participating with a team which I find much more enjoyable because it isn’t ever a real “race” per se where we are competing with others.  We get out there, raise money for good causes or just want to have fun with the after party.

Have you been asked lately why you do something you enjoy doing?  How do you typically respond?  What races do you have planned for the remainder of the year?
