I never thought I would enter any kind of "race" as an adult. The concept of being outside, sweating in the heat, while I ran for hours just never appealed to me.
Recently, I've thought more and more about races. I don't need to win, I just wonder if my leg has the ability, after my injuries, to get to a point where I CAN complete a race in a reasonable time.
I saw a shirt similar to this one www.cafepress.com/mf/528
and became even more inspired.
I am not putting a specific time frame on this because my leg creates special circumstances. I plan to start with a 5K and then maybe try the half marathon.
All this is just entertaining a dream, a challenge for myself. Wondering if I can beat the odds and do something I never imagined.
While it's definitely possible that my injured leg is not capable of such a feat, I'm willing to see what the leg can accomplish with dedication and training that is careful not to reinjure myself just to prove something to myself.
I'll be working carefully and mindfully towards this goal.
I'm a little excited.
