Okay…I thought of a few more things that I was afraid of that I must add to my list!
17. Snakes that might be hiding under my bed. Have I ever found a snake under my bed? No. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t scare me! I am always afraid when I have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, because when I come back to bed the snakes are going to be ready to bite my feet! This fear has caused me to form a habit of jumping into my bed from about two to three feet away from it. Tia thinks it is a game and she tries to bite my feet…but she never gets me!
18. That I am going to forget something I need for my race or for the whole weekend! Yikes!
19. Bad guys.
20. Bad guys that might be hiding under my bed. This is a lot like the snakes under the bed fear, in that I am afraid a bad guy will grab my ankles if I do not make a running jump into my bed at night.
However, number nine from my last post is becoming less of a fear as I am crossing things off of my to-do list!
As far as my race fears go, I have been doing everything I can to prepare…I’ve been eating tons of carbs, I packed a t-shirt, a long sleeve shirt, and a jacket, I finished an easy three mile run, and I went to a nice relaxing yoga class today.
Here goes nothing!
