Maybe you've fallen into a rut or suffered an injury or lost your running mojo. Maybe you want so badly to get back to running, to get faster and stronger and better at everything. All at once. Immediately. Maybe you have become Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, all "I want an Oompa Loompa, Daddy. I want an Oompa Loompa now!" If so, congratulations and welcome to the club! Every runner has been there at some point. But unfortunately, that is not a great way to get better at anything. Or to inherit a ridiculously cool chocolate factory. But no worries. You're not alone. All is not lost. If you want to run happy, for the pure joy of it, with no expectations or attachments to results, come with me on this adventure, with six aid stations/helpful hints along the way.
