I must be going mental. I signed up for another half marathon, and this one's taking place in seven weeks. *big gulp*
It's just been tough for me to focus on running lately, and joining races forces me to make running a priority over, say, chasing sailors. The New York marathon is looming and I have got to start taking it much more seriously. No more weeks off, no more marathon drinking. Time to bear down and just run.
Next weekend, we run with the legends Paula Radcliffe and Kara Goucher at the New York Mini 10K. Both are running, not racing, the event because they are both pregnant! Despite this fact, I'm sure they'll leave me in a puff of smoke.
For today, I'll start following the Fitness Magazine half marathon training plan to ensure I can at least make it to the finish line on July 24th. Wish me luck!
