It's no secret that I've been training for a half marathon that will take place on April 7. But perhaps no one else but me knows that last weekend—after I accomplished my long run—I felt over confident. I needed something extra. So I went online and signed up for yet another half marathon.
On March 17 (St. Patrick's Day), I will rise early and drive to Paso Robles for the Wine Country Half Marathon. My legs might eschew me, but I know in the end my psyche will win over my body's objections. I am ready.
Although my training over the last few months hasn't been perfect, I know that what I have accomplished has more than sufficed. Now that an endurance event is only three weeks away, there's no time to waste. I'm taking a bite of reality...then going all the way to the finish line.
