Tuesday my stomach staged a revolt that kept me home from work. I took naps, ate saltines, and cuddled with my dog, (Misty was rather excited about having mommy home.)
Somehow I got it in my head that I wanted to run a half marathon.
One of the races that I signed up for had a half marathon component.
So I decided to switch my registration to the half...
but I committed to doing the 5K with my friend.
So what did I do? I signed up for the Shell Yeah challenge. Yeah.... I'm running both races.
The question was posed: am I training for the half marathon? Yes and no.... I'm doing plenty of races between now and then. I'm going to try and get out for longer runs on the weekend. My problem is week days. Unless I want to get up at 4:30, I have to run at night. And I don't like running with everyone and their mother's cousin hanging out outside.
In the end, I'll do what I can do. If I end up walking most of the half marathon, it's ok.
The important part is starting and finishing.
