Cold (40ish- not cold to some but downright bone-chilling here) and rainy. Those two words could sum up the New Year's Day Calhoun's Race---EXCEPT I chose two other words- NO EXCUSES! As I followed the weather forecast I realized it was going to cold and rainy, I knew I had a choice- listen to my head or listen to my heart. My head told me- go to the gym/home and run it on the treadmill. My heart told me- no excuses and to give it my all.
Here's the deal, all of my life I have made excuse after excuse as to why it didn't happen, why I wouldn't go for it, why I was giving up. If 2013 is going to be my year to "press on" then couldn't let a little rain stop me (okay, it was a lot of rain but still...)
**This is race #1 in my 13 in 2013 and my January race for 5 by the 5th.
