My head is in a good place in regards to running. I'm comfortable with my conditioning and results during training and races. I've accepted the fact that at 61 years old I'm doing OK. Can I be faster or better? Maybe but do I need to? Probably not. Therefore, knowing I can run any type of race, I need to decide what will be most enjoyable. Running to "run" is my new attitude. Just to get out and run...whatever the pace or distance. One thing for sure is that I need to incorporate more trail racing since that is most enjoyable. Today I did just that by joining up with the Shenipsit Striders in Tolland CT. They hold a "Fat Ass 6 Hour Trail Run" every January 1st. It is a 3.1 mile loop in Crandall Park. Perfect for me because you run as many loops as you wish. Due to time constraints I ran two loops.
