Many years ago as a child (in elementary school) I remember watching a movie about a little kid with cystic fibrosis. I wish I could remember the title but even at such a young age that movie touched a cord in me. I really felt the pain and difficulty this whole family had in facing this ailment and realized how lucky I was to be healthy. I don't remember much from my younger years. Ask my mom...it's true. But this movie stuck so when I heard about this race, I had to run. 'nuff said.
I must also confess I don't always put my all into virtual races. Sometimes I just use them for motivation to push myself a bit more, to stay focused on my training, and to add a different element. But for this cause, I wanted to push myself and ran a progressive 5k. My end result was a time of 23:44 with an average pace of 7'38". I thought of the cause and Lauren every time I picked up my pace a bit more and at the end, I knew I pushed myself and ran well today.
In terms of training, I have speed work on my schedule for tomorrow but I think this may count for that. What do you think?
