I’m Only Getting Started

Race season is in full swing and I love it!  I finished Rock ‘n Roll St. Pete Half Marathon last Sunday and this Sunday, I’m running in the Disney Princess Half Marathon.

I’m only getting started. 

I won’t blackout.

This time I’ve got nothing to waste.

Let’s go a little harder. 

I’m on fire.

I won’t blackout.

I’m on my way.

I’m only getting started.

Honestly, I’m not going to run the Princess Half hard. I’m just going to have fun with it.  I plan to take lots of pictures and make it more of a pleasure, sight-seeing run.

But the following Saturday, I’m running the Gasparilla 15K for the first time and I’d like to PR that race to beat my Minnie Marathon time (1:28:12) from years ago.  Although after I saw the really cool skull medal for the half, I was disappointed I didn’t choose to run Gasparilla half again because it’s all about the bling booty.  Argggggh!

And when you say, I’m not o.k…

The week after Gasparilla race weekend, I’m running the Armadillo 10K for the first time and the week after that, I’m running the Spring Sprint 5K with my kids.

Just like previous years, my goal is to run at least one race a month until June.  As you can imagine, my spring race calendar is very full.

Can you relate?

Can you keep up the pace like you’re dying for this?

This won’t stop ‘til I say so.

This won’t stop ‘til I say so.

This won’t stop ‘til I say so.

Keep going and going and going and going and GO!

    So you’re a runner! Good for you! I admire people who run and keep going! I thought about running like that, but I tried it once & I started thinking about all the stuff I had to do and each time I tried it was the same thing. Guess I’ve just got one of those lives that I’m busy, busy, busy. Good luck & great choice for your song. Very appropriate. Have a great day.

    Wow, you have a lot of races coming up! Enjoy running the race for fun… it’s always nice to back off and have a pressure-free race. Especially if you want to race hard the following weekend. I know the feeling though, I like to have lots of races to look forward to as well!
