"Don't fear moving slowly forward...fear standing still." -Kathleen Harris

Do you ever think about those Ultra Runners? I do. I think about them almost every time I run. I am always amazed and wonder how is that humanly possible? In my mind I'm thinking all the places I drive to that take about hour + to get there and ponder, "how can they do that?" Before I started running I didn't know such a thing existed. I invite and run with my friends and family. And do you know what? I am the slowest! Except for the ones who walk, I'm one step faster then they are :-) I'm probably considered an "ultra" slow runner haha! However, I want to not be the last. So, this thought came to my mind. What if I could beat them in miles? Ya, what if they totally run faster and when they are done, I just keep running? That little thought gave me strength for an extra mile. I'm going to think about that every time I run. What if I just don't stop. I don't think I can put a plan into action for this....I'll just keep running, even if its just one step faster than a walk :-)
