I’m training hard for my Fall racing season. In fact, I am heading out on a 7 mile, hill run in just a little while. Lots of things to consider while I am out on my run today. I don’t listen to music when I run, so it’s always me time. Time to think, contemplate, reflect. I have a lot to think about today.
Things happened to work out for adding a race into the mix this Fall. I recently posted that I have signed up for the Rock N Roll Las Vegas Marathon, as I was able to get the time off from work, and everything worked out perfectly schedule wise. So I am registered, with full details of the trip reserved and booked. I am there!
Here is the kicker, and the topic of debate for my inner thoughts today while running. I have yet to sign up for, but planned on running The City of Oaks Marathon, here at home in Raleigh. Our areas premier marathon event, one that I have yet to participate in. Last year I opted to drive to the coast and spend the weekend at The Outer Banks, and run the OBX Marathon. The year prior to that, I had to work on the day of the marathon. Prior to that, I never thought I would run a marathon. I told myself earlier this year, that I would run this event.
So, now I have to decide. Do I play it safe, and run the Half Marathon, as a warm up to the Full in Vegas, or do I go for broke and register for the Full, and possibly qualify to become a Marathon Maniac by completing these two marathons in 14 days? Wow!
Questions I have to ask myself…..
1. Can my legs, feet, body overall hold up to two marathons in two weeks?
2. Am I crazy?
I guess that’s really all the questions I have for myself. Do you have any thoughts? Positives, negatives? Let me know what you think….
