The Universe is Finally on my Side

Saturday, November 20, 2010

And I'm finally listening.
For the few months I have had my eye on a Turkey Fun Run 5k. The only way I could find to register was on Active. I didn't want to register on line, I just didn't want to pay a few extra dollars. It was $15 to pre-register (without the on line fee) and $20 on race day. I woke up last Saturday morning to snow. Falling Snow. Blowing Snow. Snow sending cars into ditches. I decided I didn't want to run with the snow blowing in my face. They cancelled the race.
The Universe was telling me something.
After deciding not to run last Saturday I wanted pizza for breakfast (no lectures, I would have had it at some point during the day) so I made my pizza. About 11 am the power went out (while I was trying to workout to a DVD) and was out for 4 hours. It was a good thing I had a big breakfast.
The Universe was telling me something.
Monday, my supervisor told me the race had been postponed (she pre-registered). Friday morning she told me it was scheduled for today. It was about 20 degrees when I woke up this morning, the sun was out and it was pretty windy. I bundled up and headed out for the race. I asked if I still got a shirt (why else would I do this??) and she said yes and told me it would be $10 ( a $10 savings!!!)
There were 35 people at the race, we all waited in our cars until the start. We all got door prizes and we all got to take home extra food. And I found a great place to run in the winter (the trail was plowed and only had one patch of ice)
The Universe really wanted me to run this race.

By the way, I ran a 36:00.
