day 20: beyond avoidance

beyond avoidance. what should you have done this year but didn't because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (bonus: will you do it?)

well, for me, it was 13.1 miles. i wanted to do a half marathon this year, but never made time to train. i never did my research and sent in my entry fee. i didn't follow through. i didn't do it.

i can say i'll do it in 2011, but i don't know what changes will come in 2011. i could still be in Branson. i could be elsewhere. the options are endless. that's the thing about this phase of life. no strings attached. so why lock myself in one spot, right? except that i like the sense of calm that comes from being settled. yet i see the world as full of so many opportunities and things to see and do. two sides of one coin. yeesh.

all that to say, i'm putting "races" on the 2011 radar. but it may materialize more in the form of a few 10k's before i manage to train for a 20k (half marathon). maybe i need a training buddy? anyone up for moving to Branson to run with me??


live unashamedly. laugh uncontrollably. love unconditionally.

ME!!!! Pick me!!! I was just thinking as i was reading your blog that we both wanted to do a half this year..not sure if ever talked about it, but we wanted to do it. funny how we think alike!

but would love to run alongside you friend! we've come this far doing life together so maybe it's time to physically strap on our discipline minds and hearts and do it!
