Over the last year of running I’ve realized that when I get upset or frustrated about something, the best thing for me to do is run. I think I end up pushing myself a little too hard in these situations, but I end up feeling much better afterwards. I’m just able to push the crap that is upsetting me out. So this morning I decided to run out some of the stuff that was bothering me. Not only did I get an almost 2 mile run in, I did it at a sub-12:00 min pace. I know that isn’t super impressive to some people, but to me it was super awesome.
While I was running today I was thinking about my upcoming 1/2 marathon in Savannah (I can’t believe it is just 10 days away!). I’ve been running a lot lately and I’m feeling a little better about things, but not great. So I decided to go ahead and register for a 5k that’s on Saturday right up the street from my house. It’s the Dash for Dogs 5k that benefits Pet Rescue by Judy. They are even having a 1 mile “dog dash” after the 5k. I’m not going to bring my woofer (cause she is a nutcase) but I am going to use the race as an excuse to bust out some of my Halloween gear.
