Getting my check
This past year, I have had concrete goals for a lot of races and fell short every single time. The races where I had no goals were the ones that I ran my fastest. I don't get it. I can get 3 hours of sleep before a half marathon and run a 1:36 on the hilliest course in Illinois, but actually get sleep and proper rest only to run a 43:53 10k on a flat course?
With all that aside, I'll continue to race and have goals. Hopefully I can achieve them this summer/fall. I did accomplish one goal for this race, although it had nothing to do with time. I've always felt that my body is too fat to only race in shorts and a sports bra. But, I wanted to overcome that, and I did. I raced in my shorts and sports bra, and was thankful I did due to the incredibly high humidity. At least I achieved one goal, right? It is the small things in life that matter!
