I should be sleeping

Do you remember that it is daylight savings tonight at 2am?

I'm about to hit the sheets for some shut eye. Bright and early tomorrow morning I'll be running the Portland Shamrock 15k run. I'm feeling a little nervous, as my entire family has been out sick for the last ten days or so. I had basically written off the race because of the lingering cold and cough that I've had, up until about 7pm tonight. Why not give it a shot? I thought. So I quickly got ready and headed to the gym for a short run to see how things felt breathing wise, and I felt really good. I was able to maintain an 8:45/mi. with no problems, which made me feel more confident in my condition. I had been feeling especially nervous since I hadn't been able to get out to run since last Saturday. But hey, my body knows a few things about what I've been building toward, and I believe I'll be able to push through tomorrow!

Good luck to anyone else who is heading out to the Shamrock run tomorrow! I'd love to hear how it goes. I'll share my version sometime next week!

Yes, there will be some of these folks.

I'd love to hear the details on the run. I didn't get much from Jared after he talked to you.

How did it go? I always get nervous before a race.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
