NERVES...My nerves are definitely getting to me...  I have my first race in over a year this Sunday, and I definitely don't feel ready.  I am still trying to make my triumphant return after pregnancy, but running seems to take a backseat to hanging out with my daughter.  She is just so darn cute and distracting.  When is it appropriate to start running with her in the BOB?  If I ran with her maybe my amount of runs a week will be upped.  Back to this weekend though...  I am running the Bridge to Brews 8k, and even though it's only 5 miles, it's more than I've run at once in over a year.  Yes, I have run a marathon before, but that was pre-baby.  Since baby the most I've run is 4.5 miles.  So I'm close!  But dang am I slow.  I need to remind myself that this is a training run that is like a dress rehearsal.  It leads to my next race, a 10k in May, and then the next one, a half in June.  They all link together.  I can do it.  I've done it before, and I'll do it again.  Just keep swimming, right Dory?  We'll see just how this all goes.  I will definitely have thoughts focused on the prize...  runDisney domination!!!
