Especially now, practice the P’s

At this point, who knows when we’ll be racing again?

Patience. Persistence. Perseverance.

I’m always reminding runners of the importance of the P’s. These traits are always critical in running, a sport where instant gratification is not a reality and hard work is a critical part of the process. Now, when we don’t know when our next race might be, these are even more important than normal.

Who is going to come out of this time ready to race well? Those who patiently and persistently train through all that is happening and persevere when faced with challenges like closed gyms and forced changes to our running routes and routines.
