The Long Beach Half is FOUR days away! I’m getting the usual excited/nervous!
I was out on a training run recently and thought to myself, “Why am I doing this?” Why do I train for a marathon when it hurts and wears me out and is expensive! Every training cycle, I tell myself “I’m NEVER running another race EVER again.”
And then I sign up for something. I know I’m not the only runner that feels this way…
It’s the start of running season and I just get soooo excited!! The weather is finally cool enough that it doesn’t kill me to run during the day and I don’t have to wake up in the middle of the night for a long run. It’s gonna be a great season!
I have the LB half, Phx RnR half and Phx Full marathon. Those will be the big ones. But because I am a very crazy lady, I just signed up for a bunch of fun races. What better way to celebrate every holiday than with a race.
The annual Turkey trot 10K
12Ks of Christmas (this will be my 2nd year)
and the Gilbert 10K just because! – I really wanted to do the half but I couldnt get the night before off work (Yay shift work!) and I didn’t think I could work from 8pm to 6am and then run 13 miles right after. I’m not that crazy!
