This thought entered my mind today, as I was thinking of all the work I'm going to do over the next year, in all aspects of my life.
Often, when I speak to my non-runner friends about running, they shake their heads in disbelief and say something like, "I don't know how you do it. I couldn't do it."
I wonder, how do we know what we are capable of if we do not test ourselves? When I hear people say that they can't do something, more often than not, it just means to me that they are unwilling.
The only thing that distinguishes me from my non-runner friends is the decision that I'm going to run. I'm going to run far, as hard as I can, for as long as I can, so I can achieve my goal. And then, maybe I'll run a little more.
