I don’t think I can start another weekend link round up with the phrase, “OMG, can you believe it’s the weekend already?”… but is it me or is life moving awfully fast these days? I’ll often take a step back– usually during a run or workout– and think, “I’m going to blink and be at ___ (my race on Saturday, the US Championships in five weeks, Europe in July).” I had a coach tell me last year during a race, “It’ll be over before you know it.” Translate that to EVERYTHING, not just a race– it’s thrilling and scary and overwhelming all at once. Spend more time this weekend really soaking in the moment; it will be over before you know it.
I want to transport myself into this picture and become this girl, if only for a minute… image via
