So, training for the F3 Half Marathon has officially started. And I know a bunch of people running it, which is exciting!

I also decided to start performing again and am preparing for 6 shows next month! I’m not doing any new acts, so it’s just a matter of brushing up on choreography and making improvements to the costumes, which is much easier than starting from scratch but still work. I still sometimes have moments where I realize I’ve given up my Saturday nights 4 weekends in a row, or that from Dec 2-9, I have four performances, and I feel a little overwhelmed. But, I always have a blast every single time I perform, and I’m trying not to overthink things, so I tell my brain to calm down.

Also, I competed in CLLAW again this past Friday, which was a last minute thing. I wasn’t going to do this one, just … because. But they reached out earlier in the week because someone had to drop out last minute and their bracket is set up for 12 wrestlers. And since I had the costume and didn’t have Friday night plans, I agreed to do it. Once again it was a blast, even though I didn’t win.

So, anywho, who else is doing the F3 Half Marathon?
