Tomorrow is race day. The day I’m supposed to run 13.1 miles.
So far today I have thought of 27 really good reasons to just skip it. They are all completely valid too. For instance, it might rain, really there is a possibility of rain in the forecast and I could get wet. Also, I could get lost or twist my ankle and I really need to vacuum. Please don’t point out the fact that I could be vacuuming now instead of writing this, I’ve already thought of that and it won’t work. I’m not sure why it won’t work but trust me, it won’t. I’ve tried vacuuming on Fridays in the past and it’s just not a good idea, Saturday mornings are much better vacuuming days.
And I was thinking who would know if I didn’t show up at the race anyway. I can skip it and no one will ever know. And then I remembered that I posted on my blog that I was going to run a half marathon, so lots of people would know. And then I cursed the day that I started a blog.
So I will go and vacuum now – or else I’ll wait till next week – and I will get up in the morning and run/walk/shuffle/hopefully not crawl 13.1 miles rain or shine.
If you don’t hear anything else from me by Tuesday, send a search party…..
