It's race season!!!

Oh boy, tomorrow is the start of my racing season!!!! It's funny as I was talking to my husband the other day, I realized that this year I have more 10ks than I do 5ks and have even made up my mind to run another half.  I still finish in the second half of the pack but at least I finish, I still struggle to think of myself as a runner but I call myself a runner and I still get super nervous for no reason the day before a race.

I am not sure why the nerves settle in, since it's not an actual race for me.  The only one I compete against is the fat girl in my head who likes to tell me that I can't do things. She likes to speak up at the worst possible times yet I have learned to push pass her and show her that in no way is she right.  In fact, she has been kicked to the curb and I am hoping she decides to just leave instead of standing out there yelling at me.

Who else is racing tomorrow?  If you are then happy happy race day!!! I know that Blood, Sweat and, oooh so shiny is running her first half tomorrow and The Running Itch has her first half Sunday! Head on over on facebook and show them some support!
