I love racing, and I get kind of antsy and sad when I don't have a race on the horizon. But now, it's fall! And that means it's time to race.
|These starfish have terrible running form! They look like Phoebe!|
I forgot it was coming up next weekend, and that it was a significant race, until Sean reminded me.
I also signed up for the Virtual Runner's World Festival Hat Trick through the Sub30Club because...well, the challenge seemed like a good idea at the time! It coincides with the Sanibel race, so at least one of the three distances (5k, 10k, and half) will feel like a "real" race.
|My friend Elizabeth has been injured and wanted to see how her foot would feel on a run, so we did .88 together at her stepdaughter's soccer game; then I continued on my own.|
(Sidenote: Yes, I nearly got hit by a car on this run, but it was a good run anyway. Some oblivious driver ran a red left-turn arrow and nearly hit me in the crosswalk. I'm okay, just angry!)
I needed that run. And I need this upcoming race! I know the excitement is going to help carry me on as training continues, and I'm glad, because the big day - BDR - is only about eight weeks away!
Have you been enjoying the dip in temperature?
When does you race season start and end?
