Heart of a runner...

...mind of a crazy person.

Yup, that's me right now.

I went to pick up my race packet tonight. As I got my little white envelope with my race bib (No. 2030), timing chip and instructions, it hit me. My body may feel not-so-good still, but my mind WANTS to do this race. It NEEDS to do this race. Therefore, my body WILL run this race. I realized this even more as I grabbed my race T-shirt off the table. I don't want a T-shirt that I didn't truly "earn."

Luckily, I am starting to feel a little better. Not 100 percent by any means, but well enough to participate and actually run. I will probably drug up on DayQuil before I leave the house, but that's OK. If the weather cooperates and isn't too poopy, it should be a fun race.

I just hope a week of being a sick slug doesn't come back to bite me. I really didn't do squat this week, outside of going to school and taking care of the kids. Not a single workout. I think my body needed a break, and that's why I got sick. Oh well.

Until tomorrow.....
