Dance like a butterfly, sting like a Bee

I’m ancy with anticipation. Why? Because my “unofficial” racing season officially starts Sunday at which time I will be traveling up to Chicago and participating in the Shamrock Shuffle.

This will be the third consecutive time I run this 8k (4.97 miles) event, which starts and ends and the same location as the Chicago Marathon and boasts a field of 36,000 runners. However, unlike the other two times I've ran this race, this time I'm actually in shape!

I don’t really have a goal time in mind, because I’m not exactly sure what my capabilities are at this point but I’d like to think that I could at least break 35 minutes. What I do know is that I’m ready to race! I’m ready to compete. I’m ready to get out there and toe the line with the baddest of the bad…. And when that gun goes off, you’d best believe I’m going to take off like a bat out of hell. I’m going to push the pain threshold to the very limits and then I’m going to push it some more. I’m going to be running like a madman down the streets of Chicago, passing foolz left and right, all the way to the finish line… and when the finish line is in my sights? Uh Oh… you better watch out then because I’m going to unleash my “legendary” kick!!!

Alrighty then… I feel much better now. I got the hard part out of the way a.k.a. talking mad shit… now all I’ve got to do is back it up.
