Remember that time about 6 months ago when I said I never had any desire to run a full marathon ever again?
Well I guess the Marathon bug bit me again.
Sorry for BS-ing all of you, but apparently, I’m a huge, huge liar.
Truth is – as much as training was a huge pain in the butt, I liked it.
I liked all the running and Pilates.
liked loved the feeling at the end of a long run.
I liked seeing myself improve with every single run.
I liked the community of runners that I was able to meet and run with.
I liked starting weekends off with a run that made me feel refreshed, strong and happy all day.
I liked geeking out over splits and paces.
And now I want to do it again.
See you in October Nike.
Disclaimer: I know the Nike course isn’t awesome. I know it’s not for PRs, is full of hills and a lot of walkers, but quite honestly I don’t really care. I’ll be training smart with speed work, hill work and long runs. I’m running it for fun, with a friend, for a great cause, and in the city I live in. Quite honestly I may run it as a last long training run for a November marathon (I can’t go a year without a PR now can I?) but that’s still to-be-decided. That being said any early November fast full recommendations are appreciated and welcomed!
