|Last Year's Shirt and Bling!|
I am really hoping to improve upon last year's time of 2:38:08. It is totally doable.
I have been recovering from a bout of shingles...so do not have the optimal amount of energy. I also cut back some mileage. To conserve energy. That said, I am in better condition than last year. I've also been trying to eat a cleanly as possible and have been taking extra vitamins.
So here goes nothing. Just. Relax. Breathe. Run. One step in front of the other! Perhaps I am too concerned about TIME. And that that time is some sort of indicator on my value as a person. Or that it demonstrates the kind of runner I am.
So maybe I need to dig a little deeper and stop giving a shit. And just run. Today's easy run felt good the whole way. Sure it was short, but it reminded me that feeling good is really why I run. I need to remember that.
Also. I really hope it will be a LOT warmer than last year!
I am also excited to see way more peeps (that i actually KNOW!) running this year! Michelle, Leana, Sakia and my pal Tara are partaking. And if we all send good weather vibes I am certain mother nature will cooperate, nest pas?
