I have a few minutes of peace and quiet and I just realized that last Saturday I ran the last race I had scheduled for the season. It feels sort of weird, like "Now, what do I do?"
This season I did not meet my goal of a sub30, in fact I ran slower than ever on some of the races that I did. However, it was a season of firsts for me. I ran my first half marathon, half of a half trail run, 10k, 5k trail, helped my daughter and granddaughter both get new personal best times. Best of all, I got my three year old grandson interested in running races.
Although I may have been running slower this year I noticed that I feel stronger as a runner. Lately, when I am out running I realize that I no longer feel like that awkward runner:
Giggles aside, I am giving serious thought to signing up for a half marathon again this spring, but this time I want to focus on a better time. But I have time to think about that one.
