I bought a treadmill last year in January. Not because I was setting a resolution or wanting to hit a goal, but because there have been days in north Texas when it’s freezing outside, and I’m a Texan, so freezing temperatures scare us. We don’t know what to do.
My last race was in 2015. I’ve run pretty consistently since then, but in 2015 I was dealing with what I didn’t know was a vestibular disorder. It made running hard.
I was too worried to try a race. I knew my time would be slow. I wasn’t sure if I would even be able to finish 3.1 miles with a dizzy head.
