I'm through with doubt. There's nothing left for me to figure out. - The Dixie Chicks
The rest of this week on the IG is probably going to be overly real. There are no distractions left. The no sleep, slap happy shenanigans of Ragnar are over. The Kara and Emelie book launch night fun is past. It's all Pikes Peak. And this is where the nerves and self doubt move in. But I won't let it. I said when I signed up this year that I would make top 25. That was a bold statement. I don't regret saying it. But it's not about making top 25, it's about running my own race. It's about focus. It's about trusting my legs to do what they do. It's about knowing I am stronger than the pain.

Not every run will be fun. I am grateful for Brooke’s company today, because I was not enjoying this ☝🏽one. The humidity was just terrible this morning! It was really messing with my breathing & makes me feel like I’m suffocating. I don’t want summer to end, but I’m really looking forward to some fall temps! Fall running is my absolute favorite🤗🍁🍂
So just some more easy miles for me today & I was finally able to meet Brooke. We are on complete opposite schedules this training cycle, so I’ve been solo most of the time. I don’t mind running alone, it’s good to zone out...but sometimes you just want someone to talk to. We tried to get all caught up on each other’s personal lives & we took time to talk about our running goals. We are running the same fall races...a half in October & the Monumental Marathon on November 3. I, of course, would like big PR’s in both races, but the marathon is where my main focus will be. I want that PR real real BAD!😉
Happy Friday Eve! One. More. Day.
