My father is one of my heros and I watched him transition to long distance running (he is an ultra marathoner). I use his inspiration and his drive to help me as I am transitioning myself.
Can you do the same? People ask him why and he says why not? It's a personal race against oneself and something not many people can and are willing to do. I am not trying to preach but these thoughts are every part of my running no matter the distance and maybe they can do something like that for you.
I'm a 5K runner who truly wants to run a half marathon some day. At the moment my biggest concerns are that I get bored with running and my stamina in training lasts about 4 miles. I am working up more, but I'm early yet in the training.
