It’s exactly 2 days away from running the Peachtree Road Race and I’m not excited–at all. Last year (if you remember) I
was so pumped about running it that I documented EVERY, SINGLE, step. No this year. Back in June I started to get excited about it then something happened that sucked ALL the fun out of my body.
The heat. Not just any heat but the 100 plus degrees temperatures around Atlanta. On top of that, it’s been getting hotter, early and earlier in the day! Some days when I take my kids to summer camp(s) it’s already 95 degrees at 8am!
Truthfully, I’m scared I’m going to pass out. Or worse take one of those “God Awful” race pictures that will haunt me for years. I should be happy because I will be running with 4 of my line sisters but I just can’t get my “happy juice” flowing.
Honestly, I’ve thought about selling my bib.
Shhh..don’t tell anyone!
To make matters even worse, I will not have my family there because the hubs has to work. ((sigh)) So instead of my family cheering me through the finish line, I’ll have to do it by myself!
Despite my fears, I am going to “keep it moving” and lace up my tennis shoes and complete my second race–all by myself. Does anyone else feel like this? Am I being a baby or is the heat getting to you also?
