Crazy is the New Normal

I did another crazy thing today!  I guess my crazy is the new normal though.  I registered to run in a 5K in Dubai in about two weeks from now on November 9!  Wooo Whooo!!  

Yall pray for me as I am going to attempt to run...okay let me change that...jog...the entire race without stopping!  I have done one 5K in the states back in June so I think I can do it.  I haven't been training but I've been working out regularly so I should be fine.  I might do a little training now that I think about it.  Oh who cares?  I'm not about to race any chicks.  I'm really just running for my health and self gratification and because I like doing little crazy stuff like this that only a few people really care about doing.  I'm not running to raise any money for any cause whatsoever.  All I know is I just paid $32 so I can get a race number and maybe a T-shirt, and bragging rights to say I did that!... *Kanye shrug*  LOL!  

I guess the most important part of it will be that I finish the run and feel a sense of accomplishment. (that was supposed to make me feel better....nope didn't work).  Anyway, I will be running on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.  It is absolutely fabulous there.  It is actually a man made archipelago.  The architecture in the United Arab Emirates is sick!  It is phenomenal to see with your own eyes.  Yes, this place does exist!  

Check out where I will be running soon.  I will definitely take pictures and post them.  I'm excited just to be going to Dubai but, this run will be another experience for me to be proud of myself for.  Life's good!

The Palm Jumeirah!  This is a computer simulated aerial view...I think!

The real Palm Jumeirah! 

This is the course I will run!  No I will NAWT be doing the 10K.  I know my limits at this time!  Thank you!  Maybe next time... o_O
