My top five fears for my first race on Saturday:

1. Tripping and falling on my butt
2. Huffing and puffing so hard that I cannot finish
3. Being last
4. Getting lost on the way to the race/Being late/Unable to find a place my unable to parallel park self can park
5. Looking foolish

These are fears that I know are irrational, minus the getting lost one which anyone who knows me is very likely to happen, but they still flash through my head. One of the reasons I want to run in this race is to help overcome the fear of the unknown, of doing something different. That it is OK to look foolish or be last or huff and puff with a bright red face.

See you at the starting line.
