It was fun following along. I know I'll be watching for you in other parts of the boards especially currently in your trip report.
1. Looking for new shoes is always fun! I haven't retired a pair of shoes yet but I might have to sooner or later.Hey guys! It's me again!
So ... it’s finally here: the 10K Recap!
If you’re interested, my sister wrote her own 10K Recap, which is in the post right below mine.
While I have your attention, here are a few other things going on with me:
1 – Remember last summer when I was agonizing over getting new shoes? Well, those shoes are close to retirement. They are now for “shorter” runs only … anything over 6 miles they hurt too much (and I think they’re starting to hurt on the shorter runs too … I may be retiring them before the end of the month). It’s crazy to think that I’ve had them long enough to retire them. (Also, when/how did 6 miles become a “shorter” run?)
2 – At the beginning of the year, I had some pretty grand ambitions to make 2016 the “Year of Sarah,” which included a race every other month. Well … that didn’t happen. January and February were pretty rough months for me, and I’m still bouncing back (and not very well). I’m starting to think about doing a race in May, but … still not sure that’s going to happen.
3 – I’m working on figuring out my first half marathon. The original idea was Disneyland Half, but that got nixed a few months ago because of cost issues. I’m also looking at Avengers (I actually kinda really love that idea, since I’m starting to get into Marvel/MCU, and I already know who my costume inspiration would be), but that may also be cost prohibitive. Also … my sister has class until late in the day on Thursdays, so for those two, we couldn’t do the 5K and would be on a really tight schedule on Friday. Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia is my best cost & scheduling option, but … as you guys probably know by now, I like to create drama when there is no reason for drama to exist, so nothing is that simple with me. I’m not excited about it, and I’m not sure that I want my first half marathon to be something that I’m not excited about. So there’s that.
4 – There is so much going on in my head right now. I wish I could share it with you guys, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few months, it’s that I’m not good at expressing myself in a way that gets my thoughts across without any unintentional negative connotation. Lately much of what I’ve said has sounded, whiny, witchy, mean, angry, etc … without my intending it to be. I’m definitely in a weird place right now, and it’s hard to not be able to articulate it any way that makes sense.
Anyway ... that's me. I think that's all you'll hear from me on here ... but I promise, I'm probably still alive and running! Emphasis on the probably
