Scarecrow asked for a Brain, Tin Man for a Heart, and Lion for Courage. If you could meet the Wizard of Running and ask for anything what would it be? When your wish was granted how would your travels down the Yellow Brick Road of running be different?
It is no secret that I am NOT PATIENT. The most glaring and simple example of this is that I HATE to wait in line, I don't have the patience for it. As a Runner waiting in line is a necessity, from packet pick-up, to porta potties, to start lines, to post race grub, waiting in line is a MUST...
I would ask the Wizard of Running for PATIENCE. I believe that a dose of Patience would make me a better Runner, Mom, Spouse, Friend, Co-Worker, etc. etc. I always feel rushed and pressured. I want to be faster, stronger, better, run more races, achieve more things, skip ahead, more more more, now now now. PATIENCE!! Slow down! Enjoy the road. I truly believe that Patience would help me Enjoy the journey down the Yellow Brick Road of Running. I would be able to find the Zen that I seek and with time I would achieve my GOALS.
- I leave you with this DORKY video shot after my 14 mile run last weekend. The trail is actually called The Foothills Trail, not the Orting trail....sorry about that..I was not about to retake the video, people were already gawking wondering what I was up to. Turn down your volume, the road noise is bad.
