Really? What was I thinking? Oh I don't know maybe something like you can do it, you ran a mile before. Yeah in eighth grade! Well it's just two more miles. I plan on doing the Color Run this summer. One small caveat. I hate running. It's not like I have to run the whole thing so I could walk/run/jog but it's not called the Color Walk/run/jog. Doesn't roll off the tongue quite as well.
There's a reason I don't like running. All the pressure it puts on your joints and all my old injuries scare the bejeezus out of me. Last time I tried to run nearly broke my ankle. No joke. Also I'm the most insecure, self-conscious person you'll ever meet. I hate trying to run because I get nothing but grief from my mom. Yes I know, I know, block her out or whatever. But it takes so much strength to do that and I'm easily defeated.
I've been told I run like a T-rex. That's right like a dinosaur. I've got long legs but I take short steps. Accompanying those long legs come long arms as per the body type. I just don't run like a normal human being. Oh no, can't have that. I run with my arms tucked in at my sides so that my hands are the only thing flapping around. As if that will do something. Only thing it does it makes me look like a fool. But with my dinosaur like running skills and my feeble attempts to run like a person, I decide that a 5k is a good idea. Yeah. But what I lack in
I make up for in
. I don't think there's a sarcasm face so this will have to do
. The frightening thing is I still plan on doing it. I'm just gonna make myself sick worrying over it.
I'm sorry this is such a whiny entry but I had to tell someone. Might as well be a lot of someones.
