Run Run Run

Not to be confused with my last blog post, Sun Sun Sun, this blog is about my weekend. I am training for Mt. Si Relay with a couple friends and a couple aquantainces. It's a five person team, three men and two women, and we are running 59 miles on Sunday, April 10th. I will be running legs 4 and 9 of the race. I wanted to get the feel of running twice in one day so Sam and I ran 5-Mile-Drive at Point Defiance early in the morning, then went to a coffee shop in Fircrest to meet with the team and go over some race-day details, and then ran again at Chambers Bay. I had stayed up way too late with friends the night before. It was raining and I was tired and I just didn't want to do it. Having Sam with me definitely helped! He has so much energy (like, jumping over logs and off of rocks energy) and he's faster than I am. To be honest, I don't want to do this relay anymore. I like team sports but I got into running to challenge myself. Running is about personal records and pushing yourself to go a little faster than last time or a little further than last time. If I may be candid, I just don't want to let my team down. The snowboarding accident that took place a month ago happened right in the midst of what should have been my best training runs. I just don't feel prepared. Fingers crossed, my goal is to run fast no matter what. Seems simply enough. Wish me luck! _____________________________________________________________
