Hmmmm…..okay, like any other OCDish person, let’s put it out there.
Cons: may be too soon

It will do me tons of good to put on a race bib again.
Trails. I really can’t say much more than that.
Cahaba has always held a special place because I’ve approached each attempt with the same feelings—Not sure I’m ready, but damn sure going to try my hardest.
The first year, I found this race two weeks before the date. I had just raced my first 5K and knew I could run the distance, but trails??
The second year, I was going for the 10..and had a bright shiny new diagnosis for diabetes. I trained my ass off and spent more time getting my fueling right than I did planning my runs.
But again, not sure I was ready.
And this year, back from months of injury hell, I’m not sure I’m ready.
Yeah, I’m going for it.
