By Richard Ferguson, Ph.D.
Many of us have been running for a very long time. Products of the running boom of the late 70s and early 80s, we began our running journey with Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers and Joan Benoit-Samuelson as our role models. Through the years and decades we continue to run, because we still enjoy it and derive varying sources of satisfaction from our running. However, this is not to say things in running are all peaches and cream and are getting easier as we age.

No matter how long you have been running, there are challenges to overcome. Injuries, bad weather, recovery from hard runs, low motivation, disappointing performances and maybe even brief periods of dropping out from running. If you run long enough you most certainly have met these challenges multiple times and overcome them.

My first week of training for the Disney Marathon coincided with the approach of Hurricane Irma. Thursday’s run went well but I skipped Friday’s run to focus on hurricane preparations. By Saturday morning I needed the distraction after all the hurricane preparations and hours of watching the coverage on television trying to determine when and where Irma would hit the southwest Florida coast and how bad it would be.

I wasn’t sure if I would be able to get in Sunday’s long run so I decided to move the long run to Saturday. It was extremely windy but other than that, pretty nice conditions for a run.

(Author’s note: This is the first in a series of “This Running Life” articles on how running builds community.)

I was running late on a recent steamy summer evening and as I parked my car, I saw runners already hitting the sidewalk. It was a special night in downtown Raleigh, just a couple of weeks after the tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia.
