Action 455 - Practice Patience.

I'm not going to play coy here. I am not a patient person. When I decide I want something, I want it right now. And right now, I have decided that I want to run the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon or Half Marathon on June 3rd.



Crazy, right? There are so many reasons why I shouldn't run it.

  1. I ran the event already last year.

  2. The course was not that beautiful.

  3. It's expensive.

  4. I'm running a full marathon and a half marathon in the two weeks before.


So, why have I decided I want to run it? Because I can. Because I'm on a roll. Because I'm stepping up and pushing myself and challenging myself and... well.. and I suppose I'm on a runner's high and I don't want it to fade.

Action 455 - Practice Patience.



I checked the website, and the rates will not go up again until May 27th. That means I can wait until after I run the Pasadena Marathon to decide if I want to run San Diego. Maybe I won't feel up to another full marathon and will only want to do the half. And sure, the event could sell out. But if so, that would just be a sign that I wasn't meant to run it at all.

I hate waiting. I want to just sign up right now and be done with it. But no, I am not going to do that. The smart thing to do is wait, run what I have already committed to, and let the rest play itself out over the next two weeks.

Be patient. It's good for me. Right?
