I’m not really sure what the photo company that Reebok uses for the Warrior Dash is up to, but a few mornings ago, I woke up to an email containing the photos from one of the first races I did over two years ago.
This picture made me smile for a few reasons.
One, because I barely have any memory of this race. I think I might have fallen down and sprained my ankle a little bit during this race, but I really, for the life of me, can’t remember!
The other reason is Austin’s incredible facial expression. I think we were both having a great time – we typically do every time we do something active together, but what an incredible facial expression, right? This is going to be my husband!
Feeling the itch.
I ran a ton of races back to back in the spring, and my body decided that it was ready to take a break after all of that, and that’s probably good since I had a wedding to plan and all that good stuff. But today, I was at the Whole Foods, and I saw a flyer for a race I’d run in October of 2013. I also saw another ad for the Greensboro Marathon, and part of me was a little tempted to maybe take on that challenge again – but no, right? I need to focus on everything that’s going on here.
But I really am starting to feel like I’m ready to get back in the racing game. My runs have been good – the heat has been tough, but I’ve been really comfortable with how my body has seemed to adapt to time/distance even though we haven’t been there in a while. I know for a fact that I have Ragnar in November, but does a challenge in October sound cool? Not sure yet.
Who’s racing in the fall?
