I very rarely run races.
But for some reason I signed up for a TrailCross race that’s happening tomorrow.
I really don’t know what possessed me to sign up for it. I don’t run trails. I have never run in a race with “heats” and rounds of progressively more tense competition. I haven’t run a race since 2013, I think. Maybe 2012.
I just saw a tweet about the race, clicked the link, and with a few more clicks found myself registered to compete.
Now, the night before the event, my body is full of electric nervousness.
I’m antsy, twitchy, and my mind is unfocused.
Hopefully I’ll settle down to get a good sleep. And then use this electricity in my veins to power through and maybe actually run competitively tomorrow.
Right now, though, I am completely buzzing.
