So I did it. I signed up to run in that race in August. I did and then I thought what the eff? I don't typically do these sorts of things on my own and it looks like just me, myself, and I are doing this. My registration fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. So yeah... really doing it.
I was actually just mildly nervous until last night when I realized that there would be other people there. Other people there watching me run. That's another thing I don't do... things in front of other people. No public speaking for this chick, no dancing on stage, no making myself the center of attention.... you get the idea. I run in the middle of a corn field, there's nothing but my questionable taste in running music out there.
Yeah... why am I doing this again? Because as a lark when I started this running thing I said I was going to do it and now here we are. I'm not really sure how I feel about this whole thing. My brother is a road cyclist and he rides in many races, but he's a natural athlete and he really enjoys the competition. I'm not sure I'm wired that way. Who's to say though, I may be hooked on races forever after I finish this one.
