Consider it aspirational thinking. I signed up today for a 5K on Saturday morning. I'm probably not ready for it, but why not run it?
My arms are still sore from training sessions this week. I'm going to be busy working for a good portion of Saturday. Taking that time in the morning to get some extra sleep or just sit at home and be wouldn't be such a bad idea.
Instead, I'm going to wrench myself out of bed before 8 a.m. and attempt to run this entire race. Wish me luck.
