WiTiKT....Dare I say I want to sign up for a race?

It was race weekend every where ~ or so the blog and Facebook world seemed covered with recaps, photos, PR's, and some cold looking runners.

I however, was and am not one of those people.

I use to be.  It was short lived and I loved it while I could but "What I Think I Know Today" is that I WANT to run another race.  I don't even want to use the word "Try", I want to!!

I love the excitement of it.  The apprehension of wondering how I will feel, what the weather will be like, will my legs still feel good at mile 3, 5, or even 10! UGH! The heart is pumping a little more now even as I type about the "high" one gets before, during and after a race.  

This was my 1st Half Marathon..
 hubby and I did it together...of course we had to take pics of our bib numbers to prove it
"before"

And after...
sporting our Monster Jackets for completing it!
(and still standing!) 
ha!

I loved that day!!

That feeling of accomplishment....
I checked the site and the 2014 Gear/Jacket for the 10 miler and/or Half Marathon is pretty cool...
I will be entering and completing the 10 miler next year.

I know I can do it slowly and I will make it.

;-)


Any race you are setting your mind to accomplish next year?  In a month?

Hooray - so exciting!!!
I don't race much anymore - and we saw how my last experience worked out (not so great). I will probably just read about everyone else's racing experiences.

Nothing else compares to this....

That feeling right after you put away ALL the Christmas decorations.....you've dusted, vacuumed, rearranged the furniture in a brand ...
