Screw it! I'm Just Gonna Do It!

I added a few runs to my future list.  Maybe a little ambitious for my skill/talent/ability/mentality.  But, I made a resolution to run a race a month and nothing else is available for free in February, so wtf.  I'm just going to go for it.

50k.  In February.  In Pennsylvania.  In slop, most likely.  What could be better.  Is this more than I can handle?  We'll see!  12 days from now.  Hmmm.  I better see If I can run more than two hours straight.  I'll take some chia seeds.  Some penole.  Water.  What else?  I have no idea what it will take to run that far or that long.  But, what better way to find out since now that I have set this as my goal, I will find a way to do it.

I made this decision on my 6.2 mile ramble yesterday with Pepper.  Why?  I don't know.  I guess I'm tired of sitting around wondering if I'm capable.  Will I succeed?  Will I fail?  I had better go for a run and think about it some more.
