It happened two months ago, but it’s worth documenting…my first “Did Not Start” (DNS). I was registered for the Big Sur Trail Marathon this fall, but I don’t know what I was thinking.
Well, to be honest, I know what I was thinking. I was hoping that putting a race on the calendar, and paying the registration fee, would magically call my running mojo back to me – like my dad’s “time for dinner” whistle that would bring my bros and I back from the woods as kids. It didn’t work.
Instead, it just verified what I already knew: my old running mojo is really gone. It’s not coming back. Maybe I used it all up? I’m gonna have to start over and make some new running mojo.
