...on running

Today's WOD:

Run 800m
50 thrusters
Run 800m

So, you know...I'm not a huge fan of running..or thrusters.  Running is something that I don't like because I am bad at it.  Also, I convince myself that I am tired before I even begin.  Anyone else have that problem?  I guess the only real solution is to start running more.  So, as you might have guessed, the last 800 was kind of a struggle for me.  I ran the whole way but actually I would call it more of a jog than a run.  Adam always says that maybe my endurance is so bad because i'm tall-i'm like a giraffe and it takes a lot of work for my body to pump all the blood everywhere.  Ha, I appreciate the excuse but I'm pretty sure it's just because I could maybe push a little bit harder.  So anyways, my point is.  Even though I was tired through the last run I just kept on thinking, "at least I have legs!".  No, but really!  I remember one time a long time ago hearing a man without legs (who was very active) comment that people with all of their limbs should take advantage of the fact that they can move, run, and walk without even thinking.  So I just kept on thinking how thankful I was to have legs that can run.  Even though i'm pretty sure it goes something like this....
