In less than a week I’ll be running another half marathon. It’s been nearly five months since I’ve run even that distance, let alone a race despite my (as Leon jokingly pointed out “failed”) goal of running one per month for the duration of 2015. Injury has a way of crushing little things like that, but I suppose it’s more about how you decide to face the challenge of injury and turn around a setback. On Sunday morning we narrowed that distance gap a little further, setting out on what turned into an awesome fall run for nearly nineteen klicks, through trails and streets, from secret side paths to main roads. It wasn’t a run meant to train our physical fitness or make us stronger, so much as it was an outing to boost our confidence… that after five months a half is still within reach. And apparently it is.
