Thread: Wish Me Luck!

    Wish Me Luck!

    Today marks my return to the racing world with the Vancouver Sun Run 10k. I haven't raced since 2005 because of school and then a nightmare of a surgery which took some while to recover from. It feels somewhat surreal because four years ago, this was my life. I'll be pushing recreationally from now on, but familiar feelings are creeping as we speak, including adrenaline and I'm finding myself repressing that familiar urge to gag out of anxiety. Ahhh, the nostalgia.

    I tried to come back quietly, seeing as I'm pushing slower these days due to a new spine, and the fact that I'm almost 30 lbs heavier, but my friend and fellow classmate directed some local media my way and before I knew it, I was in the paper.

    Anyways, please keep me in your thoughts today. I'll admit I'm pretty nervous right now. I have been told there are two massive hills in this race, one which is so steep, you're essentially kissing pavement and I'm fighting both a bad cold and working off of three hours of sleep. I know it'll be a humbling experience because I won't post my best time, but my mum helped me put things into perspective and I'm just thankful I've recovered in order to race this race again. It is a beautiful road race, highlighting all the great locations in Vancouver with live local bands marking every kilometre and a crowd which cheers so loud, you'd be convinced you're some type of rockstar.

    Time to whip out the racing tights and Gatorade!
