Attributes of successful people | World record run

It’s Tuesday. I picked up Binita from the airport and went directly to Lifetime Fitness. My long runs are scheduled for Wednesdays, but I am switching it around and did my long run of 2 hours and 45 minutes today. Since it’s still a bit too hot outside to run for that long, I ran on the treadmill. It was 20+ miles. Yikes! It was a personal world record on the treadmill and I maintained a pace of 8:06 per mile. In order to qualify for Boston, I will need to up the speed and maintain a pace of 8:00 for the entire 26+ miles. Double yikes!! Oh, don’t even get me started on the heart rate belt. I have nasty bruise and it gives me erroneous readings. Two words >> it sucks!

I saw this image of successful versus unsuccessful folks. I think it should be renamed happy versus unhappy people. I will strive to do all the actions mentioned in the successful people side. One of the items on it is to keep a journal – I don’t keep a journal but have this blog. Does it qualify as a journal? I hope so!
