Fear is Your Friend!

There's nothing like signing up for a race that's beyond what you've ever done. Say, a 50k trail run. Oh, I don't know, like this one right here.

Yeah, you could say I'm a touch nervous as the date gets closer and closer. I haven't done a lot of trail running and I've never done anything longer than a marathon. So...I'm two for two!

But sometimes that scared feeling is a good thing. It's good to test yourself. It's good to try new things. It's good to push.

You can't do 5k's every weekend.

(...says the wimpy little 5k runner, still brave while looking three weeks away at the 50k...)
