Hi all, and Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week, and the weather here is starting to turn nice as spring has definitely arrived. This makes me want to go outside for a run, although I’m not quite as fast as I used to be. But I’ve come to accept that from my experience during, oddly enough, a speed clinic that was hosted by a local running shop to help runners increase their speed. Due to a stupid injury, just the opposite happened to me, yet I learned something about myself from it. I wrote about this in an essay, “How I Learned to Slow Down at the Speed Clinic,” which is featured in the current version of Runner’s Life. Give it a read if you like, and then get outside!
