I've never been "great" at running, like my friends in high school or college. To me, I've just been "good." And sometimes, it makes me feel like less of a runner. I'm not sure why, but I feel that if I'm not fast, then that means I'm not good enough. That sucks. This isn't what I'm always focused on, but sometimes it just slips in my mind and I can't let it go. It's frustrating!
My definition of a runner is someone who runs on a regular basis. Period.
