Finding the focus

I was prepared to write a post tonight about how awful running has been going, but I soon realized that I think I was just feeling a little sorry for myself. Then I went back and read last year's February recap to bring back the memory of what it was like to be so focused. It's that kind of focus that I want to get back to and it has to start with a good run and a solid week of running. With no sicknesses, no tiredness and some great weather, I got in a 4.4-mile run tonight, my longest run of the year. I felt so much better than the last few runs and, for the first time in a while, I felt focused. I don't know if this will be the run to set the stage for good things to come, but it felt nice for a change.

I need running goals to get me focused again. They're coming ... I just need another week ...
