(the time is when I started writing this blog)
I love countdowns.
Consulting the Christmas Clock (2013), it is 14 days until Christmas!
Since I admit and write about it often, I am guessing everyone, who has been following for a while now knows, that I am lousy at posting detailed race recaps punctually.
So, I've actually accumulated more than 2 years worth of race recaps. 28 months of enthusiastic and unforgettable running experiences to be exact!
Breaking it down (a tentative list below, which I might have to eventually edit for some corrections and replace with a proper table of statistics!) :
2011 2012 2013 December 2013 (still upcoming races)
5Ks = 1 3 1/DNS 1
4M = 1 1 0
7K = 0 0 1 1
8K = 1 0 0
10K = 2 3/DNS 2/DNS 1
15K = DNS 3 3 1
10M = 0 2 DNS
Half-Marathon = 0 0 5/DNF
Full-Marathon = 0 2 1/DNS
5 14 13
The tentative table gives a total of 32 race recaps +/- those I've already done.
My plan is to write at least 2-3 recaps every day for the next 13 days.
What always stands in my way is wanting to do things perfectly. You know what happens when you have this need; the blogs are either written too long, or not written at all.
My plan: simplify, and write from the heart.
Whew! Feels good to get that out. I owe this renewed blogging energy to a current project. :)
As I mentioned in Introducing: Happy Feet in the Netherlands' Badge, it was an idea born when I started running.
The event at it's early stage is reminding me continuously why I love to run, why I begun blogging, and how I would like to reach out to people via FB page of Happy Feet NL, who share the same hopes & dreams and passion & dedication .
It gave me back the sharp focus I needed.
Running for me is as a gift.
A gift you give yourself, and others.
A gift that keeps on giving.
Running is unceasingly finding your way back to your genuine self.
Running is facing & overcoming life's obstacles repeatedly.
Yes. Again, and again, and again.
Running is inspiring and being inspired!
