December 4 Mile

Today the Cool Runners decided to embark on a 5K in Prospect Park, hosted by the RR.  Despite the cold, the warmth of the holiday season kept us moving and we strolled across the finish line.  Congratulations Cool Runners, run on.

“Running is real and relatively simple – but it ain’t easy.” – Mark Will-Weber

I have to say Mr. Weber knew what he was talking about.  Last week’s run was pretty good, we ran about 4 miles at a comfortable pace and everyone finished.  

Often time people overlook the simple fact that it’s the small choices in life that ultimately determine who you are and running I feel reminds us of this.  You have the choice to get out of bed or stay in bed, you have the choice to sprint out at the beginning or take it easy and let your mind and body prepare, you have the choice to finish or to quit.  Most people who start running find it difficult the first few times, your lungs hurt, your legs are burning and pains are occurring that never occurred before.  But those that continue through the pain, those that come to the realization that running is more than mere exercise, that it’s an evolving reflection of your life begin to enjoy the difficulties and actively seek them out in races and marathons.  Eventually I think we all understand that running that extra mile, forging on when quitting is an option makes you a stronger person and defines your character.   b

The will to run

Every member of Cool Runners is making hugh strives in becoming a better runner.  Last weeks run was a bit growling because of the eat but each member completed it in strive.  Now were searching for that next charity run.

Spartacus Race

The recent runs have been pretty good for team cool. A couple of our runners even decided to take on the Spartacus race here in Brooklyn New York.  Our next run is going to be on the upper west side.  Hope you can join us.

The will to win means nothing if you haven't the will to prepare.
