Not off running because...well I already am doing that. But from blogging.
I've been running, (mostly as a casual runner) since 1997. Until recently, I always avoided training very hard or giving it my all for the following reasons:
1) In the whole grand scheme of things, I'm not elite, and I never will be. Maybe I could win a tiny 5k on a really good day, but I'll never be one of the best, and because of that, I'm not sure it makes sense for me to devote so much time and energy to one hobby when there is so much else in life to enjoy.
2) (More importantly) I get wrapped up in stuff very easily. I suspected that training harder and reading / writing a blog would bring out the ultra competitive and compulsive person in me. And guess what...it has. Not a good thing.
A couple examples of this compulsiveness were running while injured until a workout made it so that I essentially I couldn't walk or... when I'm on vacation or visiting the BF, I'm constantly reading blogs or checking my traffic.
It's not really the person I want to be.
At the same time, I love love love the blogging community. Good girlfriends are hard to come by, and there are so many awesome people I've met and talk to through my blog. I also have had experiences such as the Nuun HTC relay that were a once in a lifetime opportunity.
What are you trying to say exactly?
Right now, I need a break. Something's gotta give. I'm not saying I will never post again, but I want to get away from the feeling that I HAVE to post. I'm gonna try to spend some time in the real world for a bit. I gotta find the person I want to be again.
