hey, bucking the trend! sounds good.
Ha ha! What trend? The trend of age, dissipation and deterioration? Probably not at all. The down-trend continues I'm afraid. But it is nice to have some 'hope.'
But I think the real motivation last Saturday, was to catch the train. And after the gun went off, I had 51 minutes to do the 5k race, cross the Finish line, drop off my chip, and run to the train station. Nothing like running for the train as motivation.
maybe racetime you should imagine you have to catch a train, or that a bear is chasing you, or something...
