I have two major confessions this week:
1. I signed up for the Revlon 5k a few months ago, when a friend I hadn't seen in ages said she was going to do it. She forgot to sign up, and scheduled other things for this weekend. You guys, I have never ran a race on my own. Ever. I have always had people with me.
If I go, I don't have a pace I'm matching. I haven't ran a 5k at my best in a long, long time. I'm afraid.
And, I don't like doing things out and about alone. My alone time is spent putting around my house, not watching everyone else be social. I'm about 50% sure I'm going to just not show up. We'll see.
2. If I do go, I'm debating what to wear. Not because I'm vain (I am, sometimes, and very very not other times), but because my leg hair is currently so long I could brush my teeth with it. And it's been hot. So, if I want to wear shorts, for the sake of everyone else involved, I'd need to shave my legs. And that sounds like a lot of work.
I mean, I will eventually, if I ever want to wear a skirt again. But tonight? Bah.
3. Oh, I'd have to get up at like 6am for the race. The money already went to a good cause. Me showing up to run it will only benefit me. I can run a 5k anywhere. And I'm already supposed to run 11 miles this weekend. Because apparently I'm doing a half marathon next weekend? Whoops.
I guess that should be a whole other confession.
I really don't want to go to the race tomorrow.
And hey, I hit all my distance running goals. I'm on vacation from Running Goals. It's all about having The Fun.
So, yeah, eff that. If I'm not going to enjoy it, why should I do it?
That's going to be my running motto for a while. At least until June.
After Camp Pendleton I should probably sit down with myself and come up with a TIME goal for a few different races. Because fast can be fun.
But yeah, eff this race. It's supposed to be HUGE, too. Ug. That sounds awesome.
I feel better already. BOOM.
I guess confessing really does work.
I still need to shave my legs at some point. Theoretically. Muhuhahahhahahha.
Wow, this post was long, without much pay off.
