I was determined to run 20 miles that day. The first couple of miles are always difficult, and I braced myself and weathered those. But even after I found my rhythm, the run did not become any easier. “Why am I doing this?”, I asked myself repeatedly. “Running is supposed to be fun, not a task to be completed.” Me being me, I could not bring myself to quit, but as I struggled through those last miles, I promised myself that if running was becoming a drag, I wouldn’t run anymore.
And the same holds for everything else, doesn’t it?
"Run often and run long, but never outrun your joy of running."

This is the fourth year that I am going to be a part of NaBloWriM. The Plan is to elaborate (in 100 words) on a quote that touched my heart- let's see how far this takes me. If I can tie it in with the writing prompt, so much the better!
