With Rock N Roll Savannah this weekend, I think it's high time that I let you all know what's going on with this race. So, after the 18 mile long run a few weeks ago, I made a very difficult decision to drop down to the half marathon. I had a multitude of reasons, but mostly because the joy of running had sort of been sucked right out of me, and everything in my life was suffering with the training. I was crying almost every long run, and dreading them as well, it was not a good place. I still have some mixed feelings about dropping down but ultimately, I am doing what I feel is best for me and my health. I have some friends coming to run the full in Savannah as well, and I feel bad and feel like I have let them down. They have tried talking me into staying with the full, and I have been tempted but I have to stick to my guns on this one. Now, don't think that I have given up on those 26.2 dreams, I have just postponed them a little. The new plan is to run my first full in Tulsa for the Route 66 Marathon, I was inspired by Kelly and my coach Lesley. I'm just postponing the ultimate act of badassery until I feel that the world can handle all of this awesome badassness that is me.
Now on to the insanity, this is all half marathon related. After this weekend, I am going to be eligible to to join Half Fanatics, and I think I might... we'll see. So, I have run three half marathons this year thus far and plan on finishing out the year with three more. I have already signed up for half marathon #5 on Thanksgiving morning. The one that I would like to sign up for as my 6th is Zooma Atlanta, the only thing keeping me from signing up is that this race is two days after Thanksgiving. So, 6 half marathons may not seem like much to some runners but in my books it's pretty darn badass, and adds more medals to the collection.
