Spanish Word Of The Day (SWOD)

Falta (fall-tah):
  1. (carencia, ausencia) ~ de algo ‹de interés/dinero› lack of sth;
    por ~ de fondos
    owing to a lack of funds;
    ~ de personal
    staff shortage;
    es por la ~ de costumbre
    it's because I'm/you're not used to it;
    no es por ~ de ganas
    it's not that I don't want to;
    siente mucho la ~ de su hijo
    she misses her son terribly;
    a ~ de un nombre mejor
    for want of a better name;
    a ~ de más información
    in the absence of more information;

Essentially una falta is a lack of something. In my post below where I stated "The only problem is una falta de motivation to run," I meant that I have a lack of motivation to run.
