So there’s this race. It’s a 10K. Or a 22K, but I’ll stick to the 10K. It’s in Banff. Its looks like an incredibly beautiful race. I can only imagine what it would be like to run around the town site, surrounded by the mountains.

I’ve been thinking about entering for the last couple years, but I’ve never had the guts to. This year’s race just happened a week or two ago, but they already have the date for next year’s race posted.

September 22, 2012.

I’m going to sign up for it. I’m going to run 10K. I’m going to own it.

I’m going to feel amazing about myself when I cross the finish line. Even if I’m in dead last.

Now I feel like my runs have a purpose, something to work forward to.
