Hello, fellow runners! I hope everyone is having a good weekend. It has been over 2.5 years since I have written on this blog so I thought it would be a good idea to resurrect it. So this blog has been renamed Run With Troy 2.0! My goal is to keep this blog active going forward. I really regret not using this since November 2014 because I had some awesome things happen during my running journey. However, today is a new day and a fresh start.
Fresh start. That is going to be my topic today. From August 2013 to December 2015 I was a dedicated runner that ran at least 4 days a week and participated in races monthly. However, from January to July 2016, I was deployed overseas. During my deployment, I tried to stick to a running routine but I found it difficult to do so. I only logged over 100 miles a running. When I returned back to the states, I managed to get back in a running routine and was doing good from September till December. But the first two months of 2017 was difficult. For some strange reason, I lost my motivation and didn’t feel like running. However, on March 21st, I decided to get back in the action and started on a half marathon training plan. As of today, I am almost done with Week 6 and I haven’t missed a workout yet. I am starting to see results and I am feeling better about myself.
Despite my setback, I am glad to be back in action. If you feel like giving up or throwing in the towel – don’t. Sometimes all you need is A FRESH START. Happy running everyone!
