I Would Rather...

....sleep in this Saturday instead of waking up at 6am and running a 1/2 marathon in the rain.

I would love to have tea with my friends

and slurp giant bowls of soup

while watching the rain drip down the windows.

In reality running this race will be exactly what I need. I love shaking my routine up and trying something that scares me. It's things like this that I will remember. I won't remember sleeping in and drinking tea on a certain Saturday, but I will remember trying something that scares me and I will remember the feeling of success when I see what I am capable of.

“Too often we are scared, scared of what we might not be able to do, scared of what people might think if we tried, we let our fears stand in the way of our hopes. Why? There's really no time to be afraid. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Everything!”

    1. Haha! Only two years late to answer you, but it went really well! It was a trail run with a lot of hills up and down, so I had to hike most of it, and then run the parts that weren't too steep. It was gorgeous, near Napa and the mist was all around us. It was challenging, but really rewarding!
