Rainbow’s and Unicorns. How to survive Track Workouts at night.
When the warmth and comfort of daylight recede, and darkness looms of the McCurdy Track at Harvard, TMIRCE’ers have to dig deep to find their inner light. Last night at track, we ran to the Beacon of Hope. Never been to a track workout and don’t get the reference? Well, we’re there every Tuesday, rain or shine, light or dark. The Beacon of Hope gives us the strength to finish the workout. It inspires our inner unicorns and rainbows to unleash themselves on the world.
Surviving the darkness is easy. Getting there is the tough part. As you run the track, getting faster every week, you begin to see the benefits of running with nice people who want to see you do your best and have fun while doing it. It also help that we always go for beers and veggie Stromboli afterwards at Stone Hearth Pizza Company.
So there you have it. Nice people, food, and drink. You’ve survived.
