213: PR vs. PB - What's the Difference?

Depending on where you run in the world you may know the terms personal record and personal best. Most often these are interchangeable, but in this episode, we dive into the terms and what beliefs they may create in us.  We discuss the negative of connecting too closely with a personal record and how that number is not a critical component of your running identity.  

Highlights of the Episode

What would a number on a clock really mean to you?

There are no qualifiers with your personal record

Even when you hit the big goal number, how long do we enjoy it?
