…definitely not on Pimping the Beast.
Although I had a great many plans, I only lasted a week or two and found myself in another funk!
But we are always hopeful, and I never stop thinking about running! If things were easier, I would be doing it every single day! Alas, we will get there!
So let me catch you up…
Tarawera Ultra (in relay) has been put on the Back burner.
I was thinking of lessening my leg of the relay by adding in another couple of people to my two person team, but then my buddy Glenn ran into some injury issues, and effectively put himself out of running for a little while. I also felt a lack of confidence in myself to get ready in time. I know I have done it before and was proud of my results, but this bad boy is a whole nother kettle of fish! I will be sad to not be able to run with some of the greats!
Tarawera has become exponentially popular in a short amount of time, and us holding on to an entry and possibly not being able to make it to the Start Line would just be selfish.
My heart breaks not being able to get myself there, but all is not lost. We live to fight another day!
Team Couch2Kawerau will have to size up 2016 for the win!
It is speedily approaching!
This weekend in fact.
And we are theme’ing it again.
My original thoughts were to go with Nacho Libre, but a half body stretchy suit didn’t quite sit well with the rest of my team. Really, I just wanted to wear a cape, a moustache and My undies on the outside!
We compromised. And by compromise, I mean that I am making everyone wear their undies on the outside whilst wearing a cape! All while running around the lake!
Right up my alley!
Where to from here…?
I haven’t decided yet.
The kids are off to Daycare in 2 short months, I start my new business with a friend, and the hubby continues to do what he does.
I want to commit to some longer distance stuff next year, but I have to stop promising myself the good stuff and then later realise that I have to let myself down.
So going forward…
I will run! – Where I can and When I can, and yes, I promise to be better to write all about it!
After all its not about being the best, its about being better than you were, and doing what you love!
Hopefully I can hold myself to that to see out the year – how quickly is Christmas approaching?!?!?!
P.S. Saw this today on my run, totally pissed about this Runner litterer!!! Hiss!
