I’ve been thinking a lot this week about running and racing for fun. As I’ve mentioned many times on this blog, when I first started running, I made a promise to myself that I would not ever let it become just another competitive activity. I took every activity I tried very seriously when I was a kid, and running was going to be something I did just for me, to have fun, get outside in the fresh air, and get away from the craziness of life in law school. And then, about six months after I started running, I entered my first 10K race.
This week was a blur of activity, running and otherwise. First I’ll recap my weekly workouts and updates about my running and race plans, and then I’ll fill you in on all the other goings on that have filled the first month of 2016.
