"Some say if only my fears and doubts will leave then I will get to work. But instead you should get to work and then your fears and doubts will leave." - Dwight L. Moody
With a little bit of fear and trepidation, I have signed up for my first 10K. For most of you (maybe even ALL of you), it won't seem like much of a milestone, but you have to realize that I haven't been in this as long as you all have. I did a grand total of six 5Ks and one Sprint Tri in 2006. I can add one more 5K to the list if we look back to 2005. Before that...nada.
What fears am I chasing down exactly? I guess I'm concerned that my slownest and general lack of athletic ability will be exposed for what they are.
But you know what? I could let that stop me from experiencing a lot of things that I intend to do this year. Bah humbug, I say! Instead, I choose to chase down this fear. Finish line, here I come!!!
