But I want that medal!


I am getting mentally ready for the British 10k.

You all know I haven’t been running much since my half marathon a month ago. I am not counting the 2 2-mile shuffles I did since then…

I am getting a little freaked out at this point… The weather forecast says 60% chance of rain and I really don’t like running in the rain.

But I want that medal!

I am blaming MedalSlut for this year’s collection of medals. She is a running machine (and fast) and dared me to run a race every month. I think that’s what she did at the beginning of the year… Maybe she was being encouraging, but it’s a dare now. šŸ™‚

In anticipation of this – maybe not totally prepared – race, I went to the gym yesterday (Don’t get too excited! I was wearing jeans and no gym bag…) and chatted with one of the personal trainers. That’s a good start, right?

I think, today, I should really do some running. Maybe a 3-mile thing on the treadmill? Maybe, there is a small chance of dry weather this afternoon? Maybe I should look out for that 20% chance of rain tonight at 6pm? Maybe that’s my running window today…

You’ll find out tomorrow…

Happy raining, ahem, running…
