Overall, I like to think of myself as pragmatic, tending toward using logic, sound reasoning, and being very practical. Almost to a fault (some hubbies might say).
This week’s Wednesday Word blog is pragmatic–meaning dealing with things in a practical, reason way–although an older definition is obstinate–I’m sticking with this one.
Even as a runner, I am pragmatic in planning races, budgeting expenses, planning a schedule, weighing the costs (physical, mental and emotional). It’s not just me. Every race and every workout is weighed with mom guilt (but that should be another Wednesday Word, lol). I have to plan for kid’s activities and for husband’s travel and work schedule.
Last year, with the 2,015 mileage challenge and marathon training, I was so giddy with running with my friends, I really leaned toward whimsy in planning races and training. Hmmm, a race? Sounds great? I just registered. Wait, what’s the distance? Oh, I’ll work that out later.
