Born to run, forced to work

I was sitting at work this morning staring at the screens below while thinking about running and training and races... 


Then I wondered... do you also sit at work and think about running and training and races? Do you also feel like I do? Born to run, forced to work...?


Have a great day!

work so gets in the way of running!!

Giorgio said...

Of course, I also do it. Every day I think about running drills, workouts, running repeats, stretching, tempo runs, ... shall I continue?

I just read something lately that went something like "the stuff you do when you're wasting time is what you're really meant to be doing". I love my job, but I'd MUCH rather be doing social media for races, blogging about races, or training for races. If only there was a market for mediocre athletes... :)

Hmmm... YES!!!!
I am also born to taste-test chocolate, but have not been given that job yet.

I guess that's why we have to "work" - so we can pay for our running obsession. Dangit.

It doesn't help in my case that I work pt for a running store. :)

Working definitely interferes with my training life! But got to pay those darn bills.

Born to run, stopped by injures and forced to work (thanks to the worst minister we had in Italy).
