I have been fretting over my fall race schedule. Three years ago I committed to completing 2 half marathons a year – each spring and fall – as long as I was still upright and walking. (Now mind you it was a simple self commitment – no one really knew about it, till now.) Yet I find myself making excuses…stressing over it. Can I do this? Can I get the training in? Why run 13? My brain seems to play tricks on me.
I am posting this to set my mind straight. I can do it. I will do it. I will put the work in the next six weeks and STOP making excuses.
This photo brought this all to my mind. Andre and I in a sprint down the Crabapple Allee at Cox Arboretum.
We were having fun.
Running is fun.
Family is fun.
Nature is fun.
My next race will be fun!
