I need a new pair of shoes.
I need running shoes.
I am a runner.
Well, I'm sort of a runner. I don't run a lot yet. But I want to. And what am I waiting for?
What is the line I need to cross to be considered a runner who is in need of running shoes?
I used to think - I'll get nice, new running shoes when I can do a 5K consistently. I'll invest in the right shoes when I run more than once and a while.
Now I need to think - the line I need to cross - to consider myself a runner is the threshold of my front door.
I am a runner if I run. I am a runner if I run 2 blocks or 2 miles. I am worth a decent pair of shoes if I try. Because, if I try - I will succeed. I am worth a try. I am worth the shoes to help me try.
