Gametiime Asks: Why do you race? What makes racing fundamentally different than an everyday run?

Answers from Oiselle Runners

Jessica Morrow – I enjoy running on my own and definitely do most of my weekly mileage by myself. Sometimes on a long run by yourself you can start to doubt yourself and what you are doing. You come up with excuses to do less than your best. I love races, especially really big races with thousands of participants. Running with friends or running a race with a lot of people gives you visual representation that you aren’t the only crazy person out there. Longer distance races like half marathons and marathons are really fun because you know that most everyone there has been putting in same training hours as you. It sort of justifies your own training. Running is such an odd solitary sport that test your physical and mental endurance. Seeing other runners is like, “Yay! We are all doing this alone, together!”
