Over the last few weeks, I’ve seriously considered running a half marathon in February. I even made a training calendar.
I’ve thought and thought and decided that I’m just not ready. I’m so glad that I ran in October, but training is tough. I don’t think I’m hard core enough yet to run outside all winter in the cold and the wind. This is New Hampshire not North Carolina; when it gets cold it gets really cold. Also, my job this year is really challenging. I’m not sure I can commit hours each weekend to running. (I’m slow; training to run 13 miles takes me hours).
I’m not done running though. I think I will do this year’s Will Run for Beer. I love those races. I love the people that run those races. I need pressing goals or I slack off. Hopefully, I can still run a few races with Miriam. I PR’d the 5k I ran with her; I think she’s good luck.
