Just for the joy of running

Generally, I get excited about times before a race I like.

I start thinking about what I’ve done in the past.

I set goals for myself. I look up the age-graded tables.

Pier to Peak is different. Who is going to be impressed if I brag “I ran a half marathon in an hour and forty seven minutes.”? It’s hard to get excited (“Maybe I can break 1:45 this time!”). It all sounds so silly.

So I think I shall just run it. Hard. And do the best I can.
