Well, few weeks ago I realized that because of my enthusiasm and newfound appreciation for races because it will help me along in my journey to be ready for the Spartan, I signed up for races. Not just one or two but SEVEN races.
My first race is the Color Run, which I signed up prior to the Spartan because I did the Color Run last year and it was fun! Seriously, it is the happiest run on the earth because you're being colored and it's not a competitive race!
I actually created a team with some of my family and we all had fun. The best thing was that they did not mind that I asked them to be ready by 5:00am (the race started at 8:00am).
One thing I realized is that it is great running with family and friends (when you don't have a time that you set for yourself to meet as a personal goal).
What is even better is the fact that they respect and understand if you decide to break ahead in a run and will be waiting for them at the finish line.
The pictures and memories are priceless especially when we are all making plans to do this again next year!
