Halloween has come and gone. We took the kids trick or treating to a few houses that we knew then we went to a church fall festival. After that we all went to IHOP and that was when I had the most fun. I’m pretty “carbed” up right now.
Its just a few minutes after 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning and i’m getting ready for a 5K run in Norman. I’ve been in debate on my strategy for the race. I could go out and do my usual pace and be happy with the race or I could start out really taking off. There is an impulse in me to take off and push myself to a new limit and see how my body reacts. See if I cramp up and then see how I manage to overcome this adversity. I know that may sound silly but I want to experience some quality runninng discomfort to toughen myself up and learn more about my running self. This experience could really help me in a few weeks when i’m doing the 26.2 miles.
I’m about to put on my shoes to leave for the race. I’m not sure which strategy i’ll use but I keep remembering a this quote….you may pass me but i’ve already won the race.
