Rookie Rule #16

Just Keep Running.

I recently heard an interview with author/blogger extraordinaire Claire Zulkey in which she was asked to give advice to aspiring writers. Her answer? Just keep writing. She said it doesn’t have to be meaningful or even “good enough” to post somewhere, but you gotta keep writing. Even when you don’t want to.

The same goes for running.

Not every run is going to be amazing. Sometimes, you just don’t feel like it. Sometimes, you’re just getting the miles in. Sometimes, your heart really isn’t in it. But that’s not the point; the point is that you’re keeping up the habit and building a foundation.

And just like writing, one day something will click and voila! A masterpiece to share with the world. — Mags
