ultimate distraction

Honestly I’ve been distracted lately. It’s irritating. I am a writer, and sometimes when I’m hit by a shot of inspiration, I can’t focus on anything else until I get my thoughts on paper. Everything else in my life suffers. But at the same time, it’s so much fun to write and to get my thoughts out that I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So, this race on Saturday… it’s 4 miles at the zoo. This will be the first time I’ve repeated a particular race or course- you may recall I ran this race last year. I’m incredibly nervous and excited- since this will be my first “repeat” race, I want to do extra-good. đŸ™‚ In a weird way, I’m kinda glad for the writing that is distracting me, because otherwise I’m sure I’d be spending every waking moment obsessing over the race. Plus I’m glad for a few very intense scenes that I’ve written- focusing on those sends shivers up my spine, and I’m VERY glad for that!

Plus I was sick last week- that was no good.

I’m gonna go write some more. I’m too distracted to even think about the race. Which is good… I think!
