Okay, slow down...

Woke up a little sore this morning. Really feel it in the back and butt. I may have overdone it just a little yesterday but it felt good. Tomorrow I have a 5k race that I have a real chance of placing in my age group. Keep your fingers crossed.

I have a confession to make here. I am shy. Painfully shy. I will avoid doing things because I feel so uncomfortable in new situations. I have to force myself to do things and to talk to people. It gets really tough sometimes. When I was on vacation I did a Resolution Run on Jan. 1 and I had to talk myself through it the whole time (hubby had tickets to the 9er game so I was on my own). In spite of the wind and rain and cold and miserable conditions, I had a great time and met some really nice people. But I had to force myself to do it. Part of the problem is I doubt myself - a lot! I tend to think I'm not good enough or fast enough or interesting enough or whatever enough and I let those negative thoughts win sometimes. So, one…

Hope everyone had a great holiday season (whatever one you may celebrate). We had a fantastic trip but I sure am glad to be home. I got a lot of rest and am really ready to get going. We did all the touristy things that you never do when you live in an area; it was so fun.. More details later. I'm still unpacking, uploading my pictures, getting the dogs settled, and easing back into the real world. I'll write a longer post tomorrow with some pictures.
