With four days left, Christina and I decided to run on the actual course for the 10K run. I don’t know what to say… but I am in trouble. It is harder than I expected.
One lesson that I got out of my efforts this morning is – when you do not have goals or mile markers to tell you how far (or close) you are to your destination, then things get harder.
This is how it is in life. Without clear goals and destination markers, we are aimless and even are tempted to not “run the race.” Well, this is one of my goals so I will have to finish.
Well, last week I was able to get fitted for a pair of running shoes. Some of these guys are able to tell what type of shoes I needed just by watching me walk and run – truly incredible. Everyone who ran the 10K (and even marathons) before were recommending that Christina and I get some good shoes. So we got fitted with a pair of good Brooks running shoes at a local running sports store.
So at least we have the equipment 🙂 Now the actual running is the issue.
At this point, I am not so concerned about beating Christina… I just want to FINISH!
