I debated for a long time what my next race was going to be. I hadn't signed up for anything and was trying to figure out what my goals were so I could make a good decision. I tossed around a lot of thoughts, but came to a few conclusions:
- I don't want to run a marathon this fall
- I don't want to run an ultra marathon this fall
I decided that I'm going to run a half marathon in November. However, there was a reason for deciding on a half.
Back when I was 21, and just completed my first half marathon, I decided that I would run 20 half marathons and 2 full marathons by the time I was 30. Currently, I've run 3 full marathons (Chicago 2011, Illinois 2012 and Boston 2013) and 19 half marathons. So this one I'll be running in November will be the last one I will need to run.
My training for this race is going to be abnormal, but so far this year has been anything but normal so it'll fit right in.
