As I was running the On Your Mark 5k, it really hit me. Run the Streets is so close to being over with. And I honestly don’t know what my life looks like without it. I’m not joking. I really don’t know what that’ll look like. RTS is so important to me that I made my work schedule to fit around my running schedule. Run the Streets has gotten first priority to many things. So when that is gone, I won’t know how to deal with having to go to work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I won’t know how to, haha. But the thing that I am most worried about is my upkeep in running. Do I want to continue to run? Absolutely! But will I actually follow through and run during the off-season? I really hope so! But it’s so hard to run without RTS! It is! Every off-season, I say I’m going to keep running 3 days a week. But do I? No. And I always end up having to work my way back up when a new season begins. So, I think I really will be running during this off-season.
Can I just say that every time a season of RTS ends, the devastation gets stronger for me? I’m serious! The first time I did RTS, I was so glad the season was over. After my second season? Not so much. After my third? I didn’t want it to end! And now a fourth season? I feel like I will die without RTS, haha. How many people can say that they can’t see themselves living without RTS? Hopefully many, because this program has done so many great things in so many lives. – Sevyn
