Hey everyone!! Today is Thursday, which means, what?
Well, it means that I’ll be running Shamrock Half-Marathon in a couple of days, which means…what again?
Okay, so put it this way… I’ll be fighting through some pain and anguish (while running 13.1 miles) in the very near future. And?
And although I’ve been experiencing some anxiety due to a sore right leg, I’ve decided to stay positive! I’ve made a pact with myself, too, which is?
To go out there and have some fun! After all, Shamrock is not the Olympics, so why be uptight about it, right?
Right! It’s just me hitting the pavement, loving life, and enjoying each step more than the last.
Have I convinced you yet? Have I convinced you to stop beating yourself up before, during, and/or after a race?
If not, look at this!

So on Sunday, I’m not just running this race for me anymore, instead, I’m running (figuratively speaking) Shamrock Half-Marathon for every kid out there that wishes they could run, but can’t.
I have it easy! All I have to do is wake up, drink some coffee, and go for a run! I don’t have to deal with the lose of a limb (day in and day out). Running is a blessing!
Have a great day everyone!!
