I figured why not.
I just wanted to break 5:30. I know that there’s a lot of other big July 4th running races around here that people like to do, so it probably wouldn’t be as competitive as a state championship should be in theory, but I still thought there would be some fast people.
Nope. For some reason, there wasn’t. I won by a minute.
Which makes me a state champion I guess.
I also decided to finish the rest of the season, start training again, and not quit triathlon, by the way. I’ve sort of just been dicking around and hoping eventually I’d be re-motivated, but I can go a really, really long time without doing anything besides reading books and watching TV. If I kept waiting, I was going to read the whole Twilight series (oops, done), eat my weight in cookies (definitely done), and generally become a bum before anything changed.
So, new plan: fake it til you make it.
Training starts, uh…tomorrow.
