They say running away from your problems...
...is a race you'll never win.
But if the problem happens to be that strange jiggly shadow following behind me lately, then running away might actually be a great solution.
Easy, right? "Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop." Anyone who runs, though, knows that it's deceptively simple and never free. I've quickly discovered that putting one foot in front of the other can be almost impossible, and I'm paying for it dearly in every muscle.
Island runners are a special breed, training in a place where it really is uphill both ways. But could there be a more spectacular setting to inspire us? Look for some incredible running events HERE, where you might find just the right opportunity to set a personal goal of your own.
