With all that you’ve had to deal with this week I can understand why you’d be feeling less motivated then usual. Dealing with sick family members can takes it’s toll on you.
I’ve had to look for motivation in all different places at times, whether it’s a new pair of socks, a new route or a different workout-sometimes you need it to get you out the door.
People I know who wear the race ready shorts really like them, you never know, maybe they will make you run faster 🙂
Stay healthy, don’t get the crud and happy running.
