I am a Runner

A stranger asked me today whether I am a runner.  I thought about it for a few seconds.  I’ve made it to the end of a number of races over the past eighteen months, in not too shabby finish times, but there are a lot of people a lot faster than me.  I’ve recently got to know a bunch of people who frequently complete 50km ultramarathons and triathlons in spectacular times.  Next to them, I feel like a bit of a fraud, like I’m not really doing it properly.

Then I thought back over the past twelve months, and the fact that I covered a total of 460 miles according to my tracker.  Not bad really.  My goal for 2015 is to get to 500 miles.  Also, just before this conversation with the stranger, I had covered six miles under my own steam in an hour.  That’s actually pretty impressive for anyone to do.  So, yeah, I am a runner.  Thanks for making me realise and accept that today, stranger.
