0 races will soon become ...

For the first time since I first started running races in late 2004, I'm signed up for exactly 0 races. There's some strange beauty and liberation in that though. I'm also getting antsy about it. 

I don't like vague Facebook posts or Tweets or blogs, but this is one of those types of posts. Perhaps other things happening in my life are finally pushing me back to just getting my thoughts out there no matter how complete or incomplete they are.

I'm really close to signing up for something a little less than 3 months away that will be one of the toughest challenges I've done since my last marathon training 2 years ago. 

I need it. I want it. Most importantly, I'm excited enough about it that I can't even tell anyone about it yet. 

I often hear someone say I’m not a real runner. We are all runners, some just run faster than others. I never met a fake runner.
