#HFCNC

_5_28_13post
MY first track race in maybe three years will be in ONE day. Let us state that better, I race Wednesday (kind of gave me the jitters right there). I envision I have come full circle as a runner AND person.
_
A genius friend of mine, well an awesome runner and yes friend of mine.. I asked for advice.. pointed me toward a 5k.
_
Stating simply,
“if you run a 24:00 5k on the track you’ll be okay with it. If you run a shitty mile or dread it, 800m, you won’t. “
_
I totally agreed of course.
_
At 26 I feel like it has been enough time away from the track. I would like to put my “balanced head” to the test, knowing that it doesn’t really matter not even slightly how I do. It really will not alter or even change the world in the slightest.
_
Fact, NO ONE CARES.
_
This leads me to my well thought out and very measurable goal of the season that is, to just have-fun-compete-not care. We could even make a fun little acronym HFCNC, hash tag it, and throw it on Twitter. WHAT?! It still doesn’t matter?! 
_
no.
_
We live on this impossibly large earth and we think that we impact it so heavily  Not true, unless you mean pollution wise but that is a matter for a different day.. Truth is most of what we do is for us. So, why not take your next race down in style, get rid of the nerves they can’t help you. Just relax take a deep breath and compete.

Girls and Sports


There are a ton of web pages targeted at sports fans on the web these days. I stumbled across a great one today, called Women Talk Sports (WTS). WTS was started my a former steeple chase extraordinaire named Ann Gaffigan, a former basketball player Megan Hueter and an award winning writer/producer Jane Schonberger
. Sounds like a great group of people to me.

If you are like me and have just graduated from college and missing your teammates, WTS is the place to go. It is a calumniation of awesome women for you to surround yourself with (there is some boy’s sports in there also). WTS is basically a ton of different bloggers, talking about an array of topics under one roof. The blogs mainly have to do with promoting women and strength/sports. The blogs aren’t just all about race results either; they have fun topics like “Vote for the new Wonder Women” or “Can you surf better than this Orca whale?”. Although, if you are itching to find an outcome to a race there is a tab called “Race Report”, where you can get your fix.

Whatever you are looking for this is a great find, and they are adding a climbing tab soon so stay tuned ladies.
