Not “Ready To Run” like the Dixie Chicks.

More like the kind of running we’ll be doing here in Nashville in October for the Color Run!

I’ll tell you something that I’ve never done. Run a full 5K. I’ve finished a bunch of them, but I certainly haven’t RUN the entire 3.1 miles ever in my 32 years of existence on this planet.

So I’ve got my Couch to 5K app ready to go and I’m gonna attempt to actually run [read: jog] the Color Run in October. Here’s what I think I have going in my favor: Laughter. I think the fact that I will be getting painted multi-colors, and everyone around me will be experiencing the same thing, I think that will make me laugh.

I’ve never laughed throughout a race. Maybe I will succeed at both things in October. Couch to 5K starts tomorrow.

I’ve finished a lot of races. I finished a half-marathon once, remember?

I wrote about that race over at (in)courage, and how God has shown me His love, especially in my singleness, through the end of that half-marathon.

And I wrote about my sweet friend, Katie. I’m grateful for her.

I’d love for you to pop over to (in)courage and check it out and share your thoughts.

On a completely unrelated note, I’ve been listening to Dixie Chicks for hours now thanks to this blog post title.

Do you have a favorite Dixie Chicks song?
