I’ve been a little out of sorts lately. Okay a lot out of sorts. Stress + lack of running + post marathon blues = very unhappy Dorothy.
So when the opportunity arose to run YET another MARATHON how could I say no?!?!
I’ve never been to VEGAS and what better way to see a city or experience a new town than to run it. Yep. RUN IT.
Marathon #23 is 6 days away. I’m not prepared. I’m not in the shape I was in a month and a half ago. I may not break 4 hours. BUT I DON’T CARE. I’m about to do what I love and love what I do.
I LOVE 26.2 so much that I waited till 11.26.2012 to do this blog post – because yes I wanted a 26.2 in the date. Yes I am THAT much of a running geek.
On tap for this week is to get my mind straight so I can tackle 26.2 again and to make a feather head thing-a-ma-bob because I’d like to feel sort of vegasy [is that a word?] on my next 26.2.
I’ll do my usual little disclaimer. Probably not the smartest thing in the world to run another marathon, but I like them, and I want quantity and quality. When it comes to the marathon distance I have a real problem with this idea. On shorter races I’m all about quality – it’s why I don’t really want to run 13.1 while in Vegas - because I don’t think I can PR after travel and hanging out for 2+ days….but a marathon? Well I don’t mind if it’s just another number in my list of marathons because I really like quantity possibly more than I like quality when it comes to the 26.2 distance?
I come alive during the marathon. It’s hard, painful, glorious, tear inducing fun to me and I’m AS ready as ever to get back out there again and as cheesy as it sounds…..find my strong.
Will you be running the #stripatnight? The half or full?
If you come to the expo check out the Women’s Running Booth!! At some point during the weekend I’ll be there helping to promote the November/December issue - insert GIANT smile.
