I feel an update is needed here since I haven't blogged in awhile, but looking at what I've been doing the past couple weeks doesn't really beg for an update.
Anyway, an update you will have!
The month of February was attempting to balance traveling and staying active. I was in Florida and Arizona for Ragnar (working, not running) and both trips knocked me off my schedule and exhausted me. Getting back onto a schedule after being that tired is tough, but with races lingering just weeks away, I had to motivate myself to get back on track.
Speaking of races, I have a couple on the horizon. Tomorrow I'll see if my legs have any endurance in them by running the Lake Samammish Half Marathon. It'll be my 3rd time running this race and honestly the least prepared I've been. My increased cycling has unfortunately put running on the back-burner and I'm going to pay for it this Saturday. Goal for the race? To run the entire thing, no walk breaks.
The following weekend I'll be racing my very first cycling road race in Sequim. I'm not sure how I feel about this one. With all the activities I've been doing, I've been having a hard time getting excited to race. Can't I just ride my bike for the fun of it? Well, of course I can, but I still need to see if I even like racing first. And I won't judge it on only one race, I'll give it a season.
Outside of running and biking, things are same 'ol, same 'ol. I'm actually feeling pretty blah about life. I'm feeling the most anxious I ever have for a big change in my life. I'm calling it my quarter-life crisis. I wish I had the means to get the hell out of dodge and go on an adventure. Hike the PCT this summer, go on a long road trip, ride my bike somewhere really far, do SOMETHING. But those means aren't there at this time. One day...
