Do one thing everyday that scares you. - Eleanor Roosevelt
I'm a fairly timid person, so I don't think I'm ready to face my fears every single day. But thinking about my running plans for 2012, I would like to push myself out of my comfort zone. When I think about what race scares me the most, one image comes to mind:
|Waldo 100k runners heading up the Willamette Pass ski hill and into the dark, dark forest.|
And if you know anything about this race, that dark, 3am early start should probably be the least of my worries. I'm toying with the idea of running all the Oregon Trail Series races. And perhaps throw in a few of the "runnable" (ha!) Rainshadow Running races for good measure. I'll definitely need those earlier races to prepare.
And maybe if I'm lucky, I can end the day in a happy delirium like these two random guys.
