Because I Need Goals
this race next weekend. A running race? For reals? That's right ladies and gentlemen, I'm 95.3% sure I'll be doing a 13 mile trail running race next weekend. Let's just pretend to forget that I have never run anywhere close to 13 miles before. Back in the day, when I was a bowl cut wearing high school not quite but almost stud, I ran track. In those days I could do 5-6 miles without too much trouble but I was young and stupid. Now, I'm almost 20 years older and still stupid so I think I can pull it off.
Up til now, my run training regimen has consisted of 2-3 mile trail runs three or so days a week so it shouldn't be too hard to tack on another 10. Of course, my normal trail runs involve a lot of stopping to call the dog back so maybe I should take the mutt so I have an excuse to stop often?
Who really cares though if I stink up the joint and walk half of the race. The important thing is that I now have something to train for. Too bad it was raining this morning. I'm motivated but not MOTIVATED!
