You can’t really overcome it, you just have to strengthen your inner resolve not to engage with it…

Just last week a friend ran the Rotterdam Marathon and a bunch of us gathered to watch at 4:00 AM to cheer her on. Top it off with ‘all’ my friends running Boston today, and it has been quite a week…to watch. AND then It got me thinking – am I being selfish? Or is possible to feel jealous and happy for people at the same time? I think the latter…

But still, the struggle is real, I cannot run like I want to (for now) and I have been working with someone to help my mind through it.

Have you ever hired someone to help you with mindset?

I have been running for over 35 years, having done practically every possible racing event or distance from the 100 meters through the marathon. I competed in varsity high school cross country and track at Saddle Brook High School in the mid-1980's, varsity cross country and track at Division II Pace University and finished well over 200 road races since then, including 20 marathons with a lifetime best of 3:14:50. I was the president of the Hoffmann LaRoche corporate running team for 7 years, growing the team from 25 to over 90 during his tenure. I coached many of these runners to achieve their goals, whether they were beginners or advanced. In 2011 I was an assistant coach for the Fair Lawn Recreation track team, helping the 10 to 14 year old group. I am currently personally coaching dozens of runners, from beginner levels to advanced levels and getting them to be prepared to meet their goals.
