The last week, a couple of people have asked me “are you a runner, because you look like a runner” I’m always taken a bit by surprise by this question because I’ve never considered myself to be a runner. A cyclist? Yes. A swimmer? Yes. A triathlete, certainly. But not a runner. It’s probably because I came to running late, as a part of triathlon. But 8 years later, I’m still not completely at ease with the idea that “I’m a runner”. I suppose that’s a good thing, because I’m hardwired to improve that which I’m not proficient, so I try to work hard on my running.
But maybe it’s time to admit it.
Yes, I am a runner.
