It's Rat Race this afternoon and I'm a nervous wreck.
I can't remember the last time I felt this nervous, but maybe at the Fubon Taipei Marathon last year. I needed to achieve my sub-5 target.
Thank goodness I did. ;)
Nervous and worried.
It is the anticipation of a competitive run where I am competing with only myself, for a better time.
Three years ago it took me 28 minutes. Two years ago it took me 26mins. Last year I opted out due to a sprained ankle.
What will it be this year?
It is the anxiety of finishing slow and thereby affecting your team's performance.
It is the anxiety of disappointing the team as a whole when you know they're counting on you.
Wait, since when was I considered the fastest girl from my company when i never finish top ten in major events??
I'm hiding in the office loo as I write this.
