Bundle of Nerves


So Good Friday Family service is over…my bags are packed to head to Hartford, CT…the dogs are sleeping and I’m going nuts!!!!  Who’s bright idea was it to run the longest race of my running “career” over Easter weekend?!  WHo thought his would be a smart thing?!  Oh yeah that was my bright idea…oops.  As if my normal Easter weekend to-do lists weren’t long enough now I have to add in a trip to another state to run say about 6.55 miles and then go to lunch with friends before heading back to finish preparations for our big Easter Services.  Oh yeah I don’t know where my brain was on that day. 😀

But too late now.  The entry fees are paid and the race is sold out.  I would feel horrible if I backed out now and someone else didn’t run.  Besides I’m prepared.  I can run the distance…I have the proper fuel, clothing and water contraption.  I have the desire to kick some new distance hiney and I have my own personal paparazzi to document my success or failure.  I can do this.  And running is a calming thing to me.  It will ease some of the stress of family visiting and my bosses coming for the day and all the other mumbo jumbo that is going on in my head.  I CAN DO THIS!!!

So deep breaths and here we go…we’re off to see the wizard…uh run this darn race!

    Love your blog! I’m a little confused though…what’s with the discussing Easter? Isn’t that in April? What did I miss?
