Good Morning Everyone
Well, this is the big weekend for The Race To Robie Creek!!
My all time favorite race.
I know so many of you who come to Run Class are racing this weekend, so I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking about you all.
Start lines are a place where the real art happens. All of that hard work - the early mornings, those reps at the gym, the laps of the track or treadmill :) - this is where the art gets to take shape into something really, really special. This is the moment you savor, it’s that space between what was and what will be. It’s scary. It’s beautiful. Put your badassery face on and go get it!
Be thankful for the gift of what you get to do - the ability to go running every day and train for the events you love.
Be effortless and powerful all at once.
Remind yourself that you put in the work, You belong on this line, You have a race plan and to stay in the moment. Tell yourself it will be uncomfortable and that's ok. Pick a few key workouts or moments in your training where you felt strong and confident and visualize and embrace that feeling. Those brief seconds between runners on your mark and the gun then take 1 deep breath in and out, then it's go time!
Okay, here we go and again tell yourself all I can do is be the best I can on the day with the tools that I have.
Kick Ass my Friends!
