I woke up this morning and found myself in a new age bracket. A Master runner! A part of me is freaking out that I am now 40. What can you do? Time marches on relentlessly. I am getting inspiration from Dean Karnazes' 50-50-50 challenge. I wonder if I should do a similar one but at a little more leisurely pace. 50 Marathons in 50 States in 50 Months. Can I do it? Do I want to do it? Is that a big enough challenge? I'll put a little more thought into it but I think I'll be ready to start this challenge by January of 2007. What will I prove? What if I fail? Who cares? Sounds like fun! (A little freakin' expensive too I might add).
My first Master's race will be tomorrow at the Run The Woodlands 5K race. Come by and wish me a belated happy birthday. I'll be giving out free hugs to the ladies!!!
