24 hours to go!

Twenty four hours to go and I will be lining up for a half marathon.  It’s going to be a cold October morning barely above freezing.  I’m kind of dreading this one but I can’t back down now after months of my big mouth trying to get people to come race the crip.

Thanks Dystonia!   A few of my symptoms have been persistent lately and they are gonna make this rough.  The trunkal symptoms make it tough to breathe and I have spent this week doing light runs trying to see if I could work it out with no luck.  It don’t matter though because tomorrow I will still cross the starting line knowing I have a bigger challenge than usual and head for the finish line.

I’ll never win or do very good at any race.  It’s ok though.  One day I can look back fondlly remembering when I was a runner and had the time of my life.


About thejollyrunner

There's so much and so little time. The two most important things to know is I suffer from a condition caused Generalized Dystonia and that I love to run. Ironically, two things that don't mix are what now defines me. I have a whole variety of other interests such as my long standing devotion to the Texas Rangers. I am also quite the hunter, fisher, and all around outdoorsman. If I had more time and less dystonia pains, I would fit in more gardening, home improvement, and probably some amatuer astronomy. And lastly, while my life is regrettably being slowed down from the dystonia, I am trying my hand at writing. I have a lot of ideas and it would be nice to see if I have what it takes to create some works worthy of publsihing.
