Okay - I Did It! (Read 324 times)

      . . . . . . I signed up for AR50.  Ack!!  I felt like I was gonna get heart palpitations as my hand hovered over the final button, but with a big shwoosh of outward breath, I did it.  And it cost me $125, so I have to run it!  Emailed my coach and told him we needed to talk soon so I could start getting my head wrapped around this.  I know, it's still 7 months away, but then again, it's only 7 months away!  This is craziness, I tell ya.  Craziness.

        Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

          Yeah!  AR50 is a good race for your first 50.  Just watchout for the first half to make sure you do not go out to fast.  Also, they have really nice jackets at the finish.  Dennis

            Much luck!  That is a far more sane distance than the marathon.

              Good luck on all your training leading up to it, Leslie... you'll do great.

                Wow.  What a challenge.  Good luck with the training and race.  Looks like you have a progressive race line up that will prepare you well.

                  Train as best you can, and then run it with heart, mind, and spirit. That is, have fun!

                    I checked out the web site...you'll be rubbing elbows with the big guns!  Sweet!  I was also looking to see how feasible it could be for me to get out there.....hmmm.....we'll see....{{{{{dreaming}}}}}.  You'll do great, learn a lot about yourself and have a great time all at once!  Phew!  Enjoy the journey getting there...the learning process has begun.

                      My thoughts exactly.

                       

                      Thanks for your encouragement, everyone.  I'm sure I'll be looking for it more right around, oh . . . is now too soon??(kidding)

                       

                      Kelly - If you were able to make it out here that would SU-WEET!  But I won't pressure you . . . too much.
