That New Season Smell…




No, it’s not the smell of a crazy humid July day in Texas, it’s the smell of a new training season.  I just received my training plan for the fall marathon season and I’m positively giddy.  Only twice a year do I get to experience this excitement.  Like the smell of a new car or the feel of the shiny new binder for a brand-new school year, the new training plan lets you start over.  A clean slate.  The promise of a PR is right there for the taking.  You aren’t trying to catch up from missing runs.  We are all on “Day 1.”

I’m literally chomping at the bit to write all of my runs into my calendar and get to work.  I was only cleared to run by my orthopedist a week ago, so this day is particularly sweet.  I can’t wait to get out there on Saturday for the first group training run with my running friends.  May we all have a stellar season… 🙂
