Run Something That Scares You
I’ve been talking about my “2015 working race calendar” for about two months now. I have finally signed up for my first race; it scares the hell out of me. It actually makes my stomach hurt just thinking about it.
My big scary race is Run the Rock Ultra & Mini. It’s a 50K and described as: fairly challenging due to the technicality of it. Also psyching me out is all the pictures are of dudes, no chicks. There is a limit of 75 runners; I will surely finish last.
This will be my second ultra and fourth trail race. I will follow a training plan, have a race day strategy with the goals of finishing in the allotted time and not dead last. I’m scared and excited and alive.
