I woke early and laid in bed to determine if it was still raining...yes raining. I heard nothing...and crossed my fingers as I looked outside. YAY!!! I would not be running in a cold rain...only cloud and +7 degrees Celsius or 44 Fahrenheit for my American friends.
I had personal training clients until 10:30 and then jumped in the car and drove to the race. I met my #FITFAM and #TTPFAM there, put my chip timer on my ankle and bibed (yup...a new verb) myself.

Today I also crossed before a gal that ALWAYS beats me at races...I did a mental fist pump over that one. Our running community is relatively small and you start to see the same faces at races...so I can usually pick someone to pace me. Do any of you have someone that you secretly want to beat?
So that's it....race season has officially started and lining up at the start line today reminded me of one of the reasons I love to run/race...the pre-race jitters and energy! If you are ever lacking motivation....find a finish line and watch people cross....inspiring!
