A few months ago I drafted a post on contentedness. It talked about how it was okay to not feel like we (the collective “we”) needed to always face a new challenge. Sometimes it’s okay to just be. To just enjoy what we have and not need to push ourselves to new limits constantly.
And (obviously) I never posted it.
Not because I don’t believe it (I truly do believe it!) but because I kept finding other things to talk about like my cat, things I’ve learned, my favourite summer drink, and that ultra marathon I decided to run.
Now, you’d think this is a lead in to me saying I’m going to be taking some time off and a bit of a break and such, but that isn’t true.
If you clicked over to my training plan earlier this week, you might have noticed something in November that I hadn’t yet talked about.
And now, I shall……
I have to say, this came completely out of the blue for me.
On Monday I wasn’t thinking about running at all and on Tuesday Tina contacted me to say she’d had a member drop out of their Vegas Ragnar team and would I be interested?
I mean, she’d even worked out a cat sitter for me (thanks Sue!).
HECK YES I WOULD!
And so began a crazy week of emails and planning and wrapping my head around running, basically, a marathon in 3 legs over roughly 30 hours.
The lack of sleep absolutely terrifies me. Remember when I had a melt down in an airport over a cancelled flight? Yeah. That’s definitely a possibility. Sorry team mates.
I’m looking forward to introducing you to each one of the girls on my team and will be doing so over the course of a few weeks.
And a huuuggge thank you to BondiBand for giving me this amazing opportunity!
Stay tuned, because I’m certain I’ll have much more to say on the topic!
Have you run a Ragnar? Any advice?
