Resolution: Run ToT 10

That was one of my resolutions for 2012.

Actually, the resolution was to run the Tower of Terror 10K.

Today I made a declaration: Six 5K’s and one 10K this year.

That is all good, except for one problem.

In my excitement of running a Disney race, I misread Tower of Terror 10 Miler  for a 10K.

That’s right, 10 MILES!

For a week I have been thinking it’s a 10K. I’ve set my resolutions and plans around a 10K.

How did I misread? It’s a BOLD heading!! … I don’t know!

Now I have to wrap my head around 10 miles instead of 6 miles and change. Oy Vey!

One of two things needs to happen now.

  1. Change my declaration/resolution
  2. I have to push myself or I will never know what I am capable of.

I am thinking I need to bite this bullet and press on.
I guess 2012 is the year I find out what I am made of.

I’ve already started a desktop sticky notes with **possible** races for this year.
A few have become definite, they are at the bottom.

Seeing this list excites me and terrifies me at the same time.

I know I have an amazing support system. I know that I can do anything I set my mind to.

Setting the resolution to run a 10K was one thing.
Realizing what I thought was a 10K is really 10 miles is another.

Here’s to waking up early and logging the miles. Here’s to pushing myself to new limits.

Oh, and here’s to making sure I read and reread things before making resolutions or declarations. Geez!

    LOL, maybe God thought you could handle a bit more. I think you can do it. Find any earlier 10K and do that too and then give it a go!

    I think that racing it in September sounds very manageable – yes your schedule will get more intense, but if you put the work in now, I think you’ll actually find it to be a great distance!

    You can! You can! You can! You can! I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT! The progression from 6 miles to 10 miles is much easier than the progression from 1 mile to 3 miles. You have plenty of time to do this, and I know you can! YAY!
