Today was a good running day. Blue skies, empty trails, slight breeze. My legs felt light, my breath came easy, my feet immediately got into a rhythm. To know what a good running day is, you have to have had some bad ones. I've had some bad ones....see previous post for details. On days like today, I feel like anything is possible.
I'm debating whether or not to begin training for a half iron woman race in June. 1 1/2 mile swim, 52 mile bike, 13.1 mile run.
It would be an amazing accomplishment.
I would feel good about myself.
I could compete as part of a World Vision team to raise awareness and money for global issues.
Training will occupy a lot of my life, probably around dawn every day.
I really like sleeping in.
I really, really hate mornings.
I might get hurt again.
The gear is expensive.
Hmmm. I'm thinking on this and waiting for an answer from above. I'd really appreciate an audible, booming from the sky voice that says, "TRAIN YE FOR YEA HALF IRON MAN." That would be nice. Or, someone could buy be a wetsuit and year's supply of coffee. I'll take both those responses as a yes.
