No worries.

Here's why I should never worry about running and racing:

On Friday, I worried that overnight snow  would wreck my Saturday morning running plans. But the weather people were wrong. We only got a dusting of snow, not the 2-4 inches that had been predicted. I didn't need to worry.

So, I was able to get 7 miles in with Bridget and Elisa. It was a great run, sure, but it also included a little worry. See, earlier in the week we, and our friend Janis, had emailed and talked about spring half marathons. We all wanted to run one but couldn't find one that was going to work with our schedules. We chatted about it on the run, and bemoaned the fact that none of the races were going to work out.

And then, probably 5 miles into the run, we figured it out. It all fell into place. JustLikeThat. We didn't need to worry.

Now, we're all registered:

Boston, here we come!!

I'm so excited to have this race on the schedule. Our friend, and super-awesome runner, Sheila has run this race the past three years and says it is a great one. Can't wait to find out!

The race is in late May, so I have plenty of time to continue with my easy winter running before starting to train in February. Just be prepared: You'll probably be hearing a lot more about this race from me!

Now, tell me:  Have you run Boston's Run to Remember? 
Do you know anyone who has? Have any thoughts or suggestions? 
 I'd love to know!


Thanks for stopping by ------

Good for you! I was hoping you guys would do RunLove in Philly. This one sounds exciting too.

Seems like a neat race!

Even though I know that worrying doesn't solve anything (and in fact, I have a hard time solving things when I'm fretting), I still find myself worrying when I shouldn't!

Darlene -- Yeah, Philly just wasn't going to work out. It looks like a great race, though!

Lisa -- I'm sure I'll keep on worrying :-) I just know I shouldn't!
