I love racing. I love running a race. There i've admitted it. I'm addicted. I will be the one who will pay $60 to run 13.1 miles. In fact, I just did this past Saturday.
I do also have to admit, this was one of the first races that I was pretty scared for. See in the previous 6 weeks before the race I hadn't had time to get much more distance than a 4 mile run. Which isn't exactly preparing me for the distance of a 1/2.
However, the energy at the race just brings out the best in me. I loved meeting the new people running their race for the 1st time. I love watching the seasoned runners. It just drove me to run better.
So, while I didn't get the time goal that I had ... I still had fun. I ran. I finished!
So, now the fever is back and I've been searching tonight for my next race.
Wish me luck!
