living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

No thoughts?

Usually on race week, my mind is racing with thoughts. Not this time around though. Maybe it's because I took pressure off myself a long time ago to not even think about the Shamrock Half as any sort of make-or-break event; I didn't get caught up in PR madness; I didn't kick myself for not having more long runs ... I just let myself be me for the past few months, and it's been pretty damn liberating. Remember when I swore I wouldn't even do this race again this year? Now I couldn't be happier that I've trained for it. It's not that I don't care how this weekend goes -- I do -- but the rest of my life doesn't depend on it.
