In high school, my councilor told me, "Stop thinking about going to nursing school and start looking in to trade schools, you will never make it to a 4 year college". (due to the fact i had a learning disability dyslexia and ADHD)Well look at me now, I have a 3.5 in BSN-RN Nursing school. Now I'm deter mend to prove those bitches wrong!
Running can also be spiritual. When you include the spiritual aspect into running, your running quality becomes so much more better and usually helps you gain a greater appreciation towards the little things in life that we take granted for.
Sometimes it's good to get out and be alone with your thoughts, and what better way than running :) First long solo run, since canning my running partner.....I have to say it was nice to just be with me. I made a better time too:)
