Grateful, Hopeful and Devoted
I get strangely anxious about races and long training runs. I know it’s normal to feel a bit of a flutter, but at times I can’t think straight or organize my race day plans because of all the anxious noise in my head. It’s actually why I didn’t write anything yesterday.
While at times I am fiercely focused and know exactly what I want, there are other times when I’m completely scattered. I’m hoping that through writing this, I’ll calm myself down and make a plan.
Runners are crazy. You know that, right? (just making sure)
Goals for Nashville:
#1) To run hard and without fear.
#2) To keep pushing when the going gets tough.
#3) To stay somewhat hydrated (it’s suppose to be H-O-T).
#4) To have fun
#5) To run with a grateful heart, a hopeful mind, and devoted legs.
And just like that writing out my goals gives me a feeling of centeredness and focus.
Do you write out your race day goals?
