Not always, but for the most part, things pretty much seem to work out for me. I like to fly by the seat of my pants. You know my motto: trust the gut. And I do. Because when I don't...doh!
Today's Wednesday Word is visceral, and yep, I've got a feeling about this post...
I've got a feeling....running on the path this past spring when I was marathon training, I passed a guy who made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I trusted the gut and altered my route to a more popular path. I don't know if there was anything to it, but you know what? Why take a chance?
I've got a feeling... it took me a few minutes but oh yes, that elderly neighbor I saw this week while out for a walk with Cocoa? The one who told me I was just what he "was looking for"? Thinking he has dementia. It was creepy and sad at the same time. I've talked to this guy for the last 19 years and he had no clue who I was. That was tough.
I've got a feeling... when the lottery for Big Sur came up last summer, I reached out to Kristina, of Live Laugh Love Run. I had a feeling she would be up for it and that she would run with me! Not only did we both get in and run the race, she stuck by me even though it was going to be a slow paced run. Best running partner ever. And a forever friend.
I've got a feeling... last year when I was finishing up my training for Chicago, I knew that the BQ I had trained for wasn't going to happen. It wasn't a lack of confidence or pessimism on my part.. it was realism. My training hadn't gone well and I realized I had to readjust my goals. It was just a feeling but I knew I had to go with my gut. Turned out, it was a wise move.

I've got a feeling.. a few years ago I entered an Instagram contest to win a free entry into the Chicago Marathon through my employer. I posted a waterskiing picture, thinking that would give me an edge. Not sure if it did, but I won. And away I went.
|This wasn't the money shot but why not?|
Go with the gut. That's what I do. Do you?
