This morning, I was showing my kids a few running you-tube videos. Team Hoyt, SGM home page videos, Proctor and Gamble Olympic commercial and a few others. I'm such a sucker for those kind of inspirational videos. They always make me cry!
I've been thinking a lot about my running goals and where I want to be. I'm realizing the more I learn about running...the less I know. I have so much to learn. I have so far to go. And it is a long, slow road.
As I was watching those Olympians in the weepy videos, I had even more respect for them that I had before. You can't become GREAT over night. It takes patience. Time. Lots and lots of time. That is what has made them GREAT.
I'm not going to hit my goals today or probably this year. But I'm hoping to be closer than I was. I still have a long ways to go.
