Tomorrow is the Alien’s first race!!

I’m so excited about tomorrow, I’ve been training really hard this week and I can’t wait!! I am participating in my first 5k tomorrow at 7pm. I’m sure that 5k is a joke for most pro’s, and that my time wont be that good, but I don’t care, I’m excited about what all this represents. I will be officially a runner! (a noob runner, but still a runner!) and it’s another step towards running a marathon and then a tri and then…!!! It’s a confirmation that my life has changed, that I’m a different person and that I’m doing different things, that I’m doing what i want to do!

In the big scheme of things a 5k is a really small step. But I’m taking my life step by step now, day by day, living on the moment instead of staying in the past or worrying too much about the future. And now that i can take a look back, and see all that i have achieved by each small step that I’ve taken, I realize that I’ve come a long way, and it hasn’t been that hard, actually, it’s been fun. And this gives me strength to keep going, to keep going all out on each small step instead of saving my energy for the next step.
Tomorrow I’m taking another step forward, and I am so excited about it, I can’t wait for the moment that I cross that finish line.
