So, my walk-in schedule at work came out this week..... and, when I reviewed upcoming Half and full marathons dates, there are were many appealing races that I could place on my radar. I know for sure that there are 1-2 half marathons that I am really interested in....... and there is that "one" full marathon that I have been eye-balling!!!! This race is a "BIG DEAL." At least it is a "BIG DEAL" to me...... see, I have yet to run a full marathon! And, I do believe, that if I do run a full marathon, it will be a one time deal! At 43, I really can't see my self being able to dedicate time to training more than once for a full marathon. I still, for the life of me, can not wrap my mind around a Full marathon! I mean, I have ran half marathons (13.1 miles for non-runners that may be reading this post) but can not fathom running 13.1 and then needing to run 13.1 more to equal the full marathon distance of 26.2 miles!!!!! Deep down though, I really want to run a full marathon at least once in my life time! But, we shall see what I decide..... maybe 2016 will be the year that I finally put a full marathon under my belt! stay tuned..............
Reasons that I struggle at deciding to run a marathon:
But serious, can one walk after running a FULL marathon?!?! LOL! Sheesh, will I have to schedule a day off from work afterwards because I won't be able to walk?
I have never met the wall, but I fear meeting it!!!! I have heard horror stories about "the wall."
And, I am sure I would be so ecstatic about actually completing a marathon that I would shout it out to the world.... Friends, family, co-workers, strangers and who ever I have within ear distance!!!! (Of course this is a fear of mind, but probably a fear of those who would have to listen!! Ha! Hahahaha! Ha!)
anyway, big things to consider....... And time ticking for race fees going to go up!!! Stay tuned! Until later!!!
today was a rest day, which was a good thing...... Still a bit under the weather.
what made you just decide to go ahead and sign up for a full marathon?
cast your vote.... Should I sign up for the big 26.2?
