Yes, part of my reason for posting is so I could actually use the title. Shutup.
When I woke up this morning, I thought I would either drive to the gym or make today a yoga day:
But then I thought, what would Kari do? And Katie? Or Angel? And all you other people who keep posting your ridiculous runs in ridiculously cold and snowy weather?
You would call me an amateur and tell me to pull on my yaktrax. So I did.
And you know what? I made it. Sure, it was slow and at some point really hard on my ankles when I didn’t realize I was no longer running on the sidewalk but I made it! And I came back feeling really awesome and hardcore.
Which is the entire point of running. Pretty much (sssh, just go with it).
At one point I was surprised how few people were out because I kinda just assumed that since all the tumblr people are crazy and hardcore, the rest of the world is too. I was wrong. I was the crazy one. And thus 5.30 miles were done.
Oh. And super big thanks for listening to my breakdown yesterday. I am still not feeling really confident but you know what? I’m going to enjoy the experience no matter what. Plus, I have a super cool coach who gets to take on the challenge of getting me trained up for the race. I just have to show up and trust the plan.
