Sunday and why I didn’t go

I was supposed to run at the PG Sportsplex today, in the first track meet of my 1/4 century adult life. The last time I ran in a meet I think was 7th or 8th grade. I believe I ran the 800m. Today, however, I slept in.

I don’t know why I did this. I suspect it’s similar to why my film isn’t finished. At anyrate, I did run today to Georgetown on the trails, and did some pullups and leg-lifts, and then some barefooted downhill 80m sprints. They felt good, and my legs are tired, it was something like 80 minutes of running today. But I had wanted to run the 800m and the 1600m races at the allcomers meet in Landover. Hopefully in the future, with a few other people, I won’t be on my own. I really think this is key. You can’t do it alone. You need support, to help you get there, to race with you, to push you in training. Support. I’m certain of it.
