I haven’t run in awhile. It’s been long enough I don’t actually want to count the days. I deleted my DailyMile email without opening it because in my eyes it would have said “You’re a lazy-ass”, which is true right now. My couch and I have a deep bond. I don’t even come up with excuses anymore. I just don’t want to run. The strangest part is that I am still registering for 2013 races. And looking forward to them. And I have goals.
I had a blast running the Drumstick Dash on Thanksgiving Day. I think I enjoyed it mostly because my family all ran too. I put no pressure on myself and ran with my dad for the second year in a row. The two eight year olds did their very first 5k and had fun. It was a good day.
In trying to re-motivate myself to get off the couch I am trail running with some friends this weekend and I registered for the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Dash (I’m not jumping in Lake Michigan, that’s crazy).
