It started as the desire to complete just one 10K to say I did it. A few weeks into my training, a relationship came to an end and I lost my job. Those training runs quickly became my best friends as I sorted through the losses and uncertainty. Now, more than 4 years, training for 5 half marathons, and one knee surgery later, the challenges I have taken on in running have helped me understand that I can take on, and conquer, whatever lies in my path ahead.

One of those runs

Supposedly a 5 mile pace run, on the dreaded TM. But it was a struggle every step. I kept walking and slowing down my pace and eventually quit at 3.5. And left the gym in tears.

I need to take a look at nutrition (lack of) and hydration for sure. But I'm hoping it was just one of those runs.
