Hurry Up and Slow Down

on March 3, 2012

So happy to get my official Disney time and found out my time was actually only 4 minutes slower than my Rock n Roll time back in September!  Not 5 like I had originally thought.  Great time for me considering my picture stops.  Yes I stopped to take pictures……sue me.  Its Disney people not the Boston Marathon!!  Seems people are on either side of the fence with that one.  I either get “Who did you get a picture with?” or “WHY on earth would you stop for pictures during a race?  Who does that?”

Any who, now I need to decide on races coming up in April and May.  Barring any unforseen bumps in the road the Shamrock Half is on for me this month.  In April there is a local Dismal Swamp Half I was thinking about but I may forgo that one.   As much as I would love to do one half a month I don’t know if my body can handle it.  Still feeling a little tired from the last half and now have a bit of a cough going on.  No runny nose or anything but a stinkin’ cough.  Yuck.  Gonna give my self a few weeks to decide. For May I am in the process of setting up overnight kid duty (thanks to my parents) so I can travel to the Diva Half in North Myrtle Beach.  The hubby is scheduled to deploy in early May.  You get tiaras an boas plus a champagne finish! Come on that sounds like a must do on the bucket list!  The “Diva” is May 20th.  I will also be turning a year older on May 13, so this could be a belated birthday present to myself.

Ah, if I had only started this running thing when I was like 20 instead of well, much later.  Sue (my hero) where were you so many years ago?  So there in lies the Hurry Up and Slow Down mentality.  Hurry up and run, slow down and recover.  Think about what to do next and in the meantime – Run Find Your Happy Pace.
