Hell Froze Over.

I signed up for a race.

My friend posted a picture of a race medal that was quite pretty. I foolishly commented on the picture and a day later I found myself registering for a 5km race.

What the heck?

For 2 years I said I was never going to run a race. I don’t need to race. I don’t need the medals. I just love running for the fitness and the rush I get when I finish.  I never felt the need to train for a race to keep me motivated, I just run because I want to run.

Yet, here I am, registered for a 5k race in 10 days.

My friend Jedi-mind-tricked me into doing it. She really did.  “It’ll be fun.” “No pressure!” “Don’t make me do it alone!”

Husband says I had better win it.  Ha ha!  As if! (He’s joking.)

What have I gotten myself into?
