Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking every night before I go to sleep. It's on my nightstand.
What struck me in this book, is Susan Cain's statement that introverts don't like crowds much. And I was wondering whether that could explain my lack of participation in races. I keep reading enthusiastic race reports of marathons, 10K's, 5K's and other types of races. And sometimes they make me wonder: am I missing out on something? Should I start participating too?
But then I think of having to be somewhere at a certain time, and at a certain place, and immediately I start feeling claustrophic. It's just not for me. I like my quiet time, and the freedom to come and go wherever and whenever I want. What can I say: I'm an introvert that way!
As a mom that freedom is severely limited, but as a runner I can still enjoy it!
Are you a lone runner, or a crowd runner?
