I confess that my motivation levels spiked immediately after I hit the ‘Pay’ button after registering for a race. It makes perfect sense, because races gives me reason to wake up at 4 in the morning, or keep on going late into the night. Races are slowly turning into “exam days” to me; it is the time to prove that all of my training ie “revisions” are worth it.
It made me realise that what I felt was actually the joy of competing, not running. There must be a bigger, better reason for me to keep on running, even when I am not preparing for a race.
Until next week,
