We have gotten to the stage of this where I’m getting through this writing challenge out of sheer stubbornness and will. It’s like the last week or two of marathon training before the taper. You know the down swing is in sight, but all you can see right now is several more days of gritting out mediocre performances – or in this case, mediocre writing.
There are still a lot of things I want to write about and probably will at some point – like my system of organizing and ranking songs that I run to, why I’m absolutely terrified to take care of my son alone for a week, my full list of races I’m signed up for and what I hope to accomplish during this upcoming training season.
I’m sure I’ll get to all of these in the next week when I don’t feel like I’m writing just to check a box. Right now though, I’m just checking in and writing for a few minutes because I said I was going to. Every day. For 30 days.
