By the time you read this, I will have finished my 4th half marathon. I need some extra inspiration for this particular race because I don’t anticipate feeling great mentally or physically. I’ve made many excuses not to train: I’m in an unfamiliar city, my commute is too long, my baby is too cute, etc.
Sometimes I need to remind myself why I sign up for these things: To enjoy myself. Running is my ‘me time’ and therapy. I do this to think through all of life’s dilemmas such as, “are Valentinos worth it?” and “Should I exfoliate more?” Total bonus if I see Ryan Gosling. ‘Run like the Banker and a pitcher of sangria are waiting for you at the finish line’ would be more appropriate for my tastes, but this tank does the trick.
