Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

It's Here - My First Race Post/During Injury

Well. ready or not, the race is Sunday - the Capital 10 Miler. My longest run/walk has been 8 miles. I think hope I finish. I should unless something unforeseen happens. But I could feel my old habits creeping up on me. I looked up last year's time. My first thought was.. hmm.... I wonder if I could beat that?

I immediately told myself to stop. That is not what I want this year!!! Don't get me wrong, I plan to try to go for some PRs this year. I love to see progress, and I hope to see some this year. And I plan to 'race' some races. But I plan to enjoy this year of running and not get caught up in comparisons (to myself) or others. I don't want to get so fixated on race times that I lose the joy of running.

I am still injured. I am better, and I am getting stronger. I know now that I'm working with a trainer (When It's Time For Professional Help) that I will continue to improve. But I also know that if I allow myself especially at this point to get fixated on time - distance - past performance - that I will only get discouraged or worse - re-injured.

In fact, I almost bailed on this race because I know that my time will be no where near last year. How silly is that! I almost let comparison steal my joy!



So as I approach my first race of the season, I am approaching it in a different way than I have in the past.
I'm looking forward to the experience of running a race - simply to run.
