A few months ago, I decided to postpone running the NYC Marathon for another year. At the time, I had a summer filled with travel (that hasn’t changed) and a really busy work schedule (also hasn’t changed and relates to reason number one). Now with everyone’s training in full swing for fall marathons I am having runner envy.
Truth be told, I haven’t really been running that much at all. Last Sunday KB and I went for a “long run.” It was six miles, and the most I have run aside from interval sprints on the treadmill. So why am I still so jealous that others are training for a big payoff? Not really sure, other than I am just recalling that runner’s high I had when I crossed that finish line, because it certainly isn’t the desire to be running 16 plus miles on Sundays.
So some days, I am regretting my decision, but other days I am simply content. I am still looking for a half-marathon to redeem myself from the disaster that was Annapolis ZoomaRun, and haven’t found something that really peeks my interest. I don’t know that I even want to do a local one.
At this rate, I should just set my sights on a 6Miler.
