For years I have been saying, “I should write a book.” This blog is as much about writing for me as it is about running. I have enjoyed writing ever since I was old enough to write, but never pursued writing as a career or hobby until I started this blog in 2009.
For me, running and writing are vey similar. You have to start small – be it sentences or miles – to achieve your overall goal of writing a book or running a marathon. If you take on the task all at once, you will become overwhelmed, overburdened and frustrated with the task at hand.
Running enhances my writing creativity and I find that I often conquer writer’s block by going for a long run (or walk!).
And someday, I still hope to write that book….
