Its that time of year again when all the things that got packed away for the winter have to be brought back out for warm weather and one of those things would be my running shoes. I wish I could say that I run all winter long and I am diligent about not letting all the hard work from March to June go to waste. But that is exactly what seems to happen! Give or take those few days over the summer when I think, sure, it's totally fine to run in 90 degree temperatures.
Which in turn makes me think the pool is a much better place to spend that time.
Then March rolls around and I think, here we go!
All this talk leads me to the topic at hand. My next race. It's this weekend and even though I have done it before I can say that I'm always a little nervous right before. To many things to think about...are my shoes okay? Will I do better than my last race? Will I finish? Hahahaha
Yes, this is my head tormenting me.
Everyone that doesn't run asks me why on earth would I do this?
Why is running 13.1 miles a good time?
My response: It is awesome!
Its that feeling of pride and accomplishment that never gets old.
It is knowing that my girls have a mommy that gets out there and does stuff even when she isn't sure she can do it.
It's the thing I do to show myself I am stronger than I was yesterday.
For everything I do for everyone else.
Running is what I do for me.
Wish me luck and a good finish!
