  2. #dailymission Self doubt at the beginning of the race, any distance. The first 1-3 miles (even during a 5K) is a mental battle of self doubt and "why am I doing this?"

      Always a battle, even when I run a 5k. I should of named my blog, MILE 2. That is when my brain is saying, "hey, knucklehead - what ARE YOU DOING?" Then around Mile 4 or 5...it goes, "oh, okay - we are feeling good now". I have been working on using personal mantras the moment I start the race to offset the brain games. You?

      My first thought, almost without fail, is "I can't believe I ever thought this is FUN!" That thought is usually replaced shortly thereafter with "I can't believe I didn't think this was FUN!"

      Sunburned on foggy days. I regularly, 3x/year, get faked out by fog, forget sunscreen, and end a long bike ride or kayak with a horrible sunburn.

  15. #dailymission Motivation to create a running habit. I seem to peter out every time I get much beyond 4 miles of running, even though I keep signing up for 10m and half marathons.
