Bad run? So what

bad runI had a bad run today. I don't say that often, but it was just bad. That, though, doesn't matter. The fact that I put it in my head before the run that it was going to be a bad run made it even worse. I'm not going to use the excuse of not feeling well this week, but when has the first run after being under the weather been good? Never.

I could dwell on today's run, but I'm not. The only reason I'm writing about it is to have documentation of a bad run turned even worse by my own thoughts.

My Twitter pal Steena, now blogging at Finding my happy pace, asked me today, "Is it possible to will all runs good runs?"

I wish it was that easy, but I'm beginning to realize that it's very easy to think your way into a bad run. When I think about the few bad runs I've had, it all starts with thoughts about how bad the run is going.

The best thing to do is get the hell over it and move on to the next run. And that's what I'm ready to do.

To follow up from yesterday's post about my new commenting system, here is something you can do if you log in to your Wordpress account for your name and website to show up. Head to and click on "Log in Here" in the upper right hand corner. Then click "Log in with your Wordpress account."

After you log in, click on the "Profile" link on the left hand side of the page. From there you can change your display name to how you want it appear on comments. You can also put your website on this page. If you want to add additional information about yourself, such as a Twitter account, click on "Services."

If you click on someone's photos in the comments section, it will then show the website. If you click on a name, you can then find the other links they've added.

I may be missing a detail or two about this, but it's a learning process. Thanks to everyone who has pointed a few things out to me. Please let me know if you have questions or problems! I am liking this system so far and like being able to respond to comments more directly.
