I need goals and structure of a certain variety…so I signed up for my 1st 5K, The Color Vibe 5K. Did I mention that 1 of my goals for 2013 was to have FUN? And…I’m so far out of my comfort zone.
So, I went to the site today, got my bib, sunglasses, this super yummy peanut butter substitute that I will take a photo of and post…it’s a UK thing, I’m told. Akin to Nutella only neither chocolate nor hazelnut but delish nonetheless. I also got my t-shirt and a color packet. Neon pink.
I will be in white except for my black Nikes and my pink and purple bandana. I will not be white by race end and that’s totally fine by me. 🙂
I’ll be run/walking it. At my pace. Getting colorful, meeting new people (I say “hi” to practically everything/body with breath in its/their body.) and having fun.
Self was freaking out a bit earlier so I inquired as to what was bothering self. I know where we’re going because we were there to pick up the our packet. I know how long it takes to get there. People will tell us where to park & take our $5. Got the clothes, the initial take along bag is packed. Breakfast food is at the ready. Alarms are set. The plan is to get up around 7, shower, eat, check email and head on over.
If I get done and friends are there to congratulate me, fabulous! The more the merrier. If not, I will congratulate myself for being brave and doing it for ME. For training, for running when I wasn’t feeling it. For overcoming, or trying to, the massive flood fear. For wearing white shorts.
I don’t think I can see the shore anymore and I’m told that’s a sure sign you’re on your way to better, greater things. The life I want is at the end of my comfort zone. I’ve left it behind so let’s go! Wish me luck!
