And then last night…I was sitting here contemplating (doing lots of contemplating this week!) the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon that opened today for registration. My husband is trying to get me to think practically about this race but all I want is instant gratification – I want it NOW. I want that race checked OFF my race bucket list! But my husband? He’s much more patient than I am. So we’ll see who wins this little battle. To be continued…
