Self-sabotage or self-preservation? I scaled down the mileage unintentionally over the past 4 weeks. It’s been a struggle to get out. Trying not to stress over the race, which is coming up quickly! Reminding myself to just go out and enjoy it… after all, Bootleg is my home away from home and she’s quite the dirty girl herself. She hasn’t let me down yet, having seen me through the past couple of years, bringing together some of the most amazing people I’m proud to call my friends, and having introduced me to the loves of my life… but that’s all a story for another day.
