    Well, today I realized how mental running is. I didnt want any of my repeats over a certain time and I just kept telling myself how mad and miserable I would be if I didnt make the time. And i kept saying to myself how the road is a piece of crap that people just walk all over and I am going to run the crap out of it, lol. It worked!

    haha i just do that all the time.

    i've never actually heard someone say "fuck fuck fuck fuck" (or something like that Very Happy ) before, but now i really really want to.

    i do remember though when i was in a coed race and these two guys were talking to each other. their conversation=
    guy 1: you're so slow today
    guy 2: that's because i did your mom last night

    I just remember who I am running for.

    But our coach used to always have us say We love hills! during hill runs.

    Are you suppose to say these out loud?? I don't want to freak out my running partner when I start saying "fuck shit up" a million times.

    I think about this guy who abused me and how he is the road and I am going to walk all over him!tongue Or my little sister on purpose will tell me I will never amount to anything and that I suck at running and I'll never make it to states to beat those Tatnall girls, and that encourages me alot.
