Itchin'

I have an itch that I seriously need to scratch . . .

I'm itching to run a race.

Yes, I know, I have a 5K coming up on June 5th but I haven't raced since the end of February and I know that I'm not going to feel much like racing in a few months when I'm huge so, well . . . I've got the itch. And, there happens to be a little 3.5 mile race coming up on Mother's Day. What better gift to myself (hey, why not?) than to run a race? Right?

Right. Except that there is this little, teeny-weeny part of me that is nervous to race at this point. Will I get caught up in the excitement of the race and push too hard? What if I have to pee a mile in to the race? What if I'm too worn out after the race to be able to make dinner for my family (they are coming over to celebrate Mother's Day)?

Wah, wah, wah . . .

I should just do it. If I don't, I'll kick myself. I know this. Gotta scratch the itch . . .

On an unrelated note, I reviewed the new RhythmBRA over here.

Have a great day!

I think that's a great idea! Listen to your body and have fun!

You can always run with me at my pace which would be easy for you! I hope you decide to do it - You've been running long enough to know how your body is feeling.

Do it! If you feel bad, then just slow it down, even to walking if you need to. Just enjoy the day.
