I was signed up for the Electric Run Friday night, another themed sort of obstacle/color run at night with lots of glow sticks and dance music. Well, when Friday afternoon rolled around I checked the weather and it was rainy and cold. I was tired and really didn't feel like driving an hour out of my way to run a 5K then drive about 90 minutes to get home. I bailed and went home instead and ended up falling asleep at 5:30pm.
My plan for this week was to continue resting and recovering but slowly add a few miles in. I rested Monday, after back to back races I figured that was smart. Tuesday I did a short loop around the Charles River after work. I ran a little over 5 miles and resisted the urge to turn it into a fartlek on the Storrow Drive side. Just slow and steady to get the legs moving again. I finished and hopped in my car to head home. There was a little traffic so I sat in my car on 93N lost in thought about a lot of things. I thought about the run and my Dopey training plan. I made a mental 'to-do' list for the Disney trip, I still need to book a hotel, flight, and rental car. Then I started thinking about my plans for after Disney.
Thank GOD I was stopped in traffic because I screamed out loud and bounced up and down in my seat and did a little happy dance. I am so excited and thrilled I can't even express it in words appropriately. My fundraising page isn't set up yet, but I am already drafting the letter to send out to friends and family. I am just itching to tell people but holding back because I want to be able to send out my link. Well, the cat is out of the bag now, but keep your checkbooks handy as soon as the link is available I will be posting it, emailing it, mailing letters, and asking for support.
