And my racing schedule is filling in for this year. September is going to be a busy month. I'm planning on doing back-to-back Half Marathons again (2 Half Marathons In 1 Weekend). And at the end of the month, I am going with my running buddy to run a 5K, then 10K race, drive on to Pittsburgh to run a 10K the following day. It should be a blast.
But depending on how I feel after the Double Creek Half, and if I stay injury free, I'm considering (drum roll please), running the Harrisburg Marathon again. Honestly, I'm emotionally really not over what it did to me last year. (I Gave Up During My 2nd Marathon). And I want a redo.
I would love to run a new and different marathon, but money is tight. And I can't justify spending money on travel when I can run this one here. So, that's what's going through my head.
Is it crazy?
I said that I wasn't going to run a marathon this year, but I'm considering it. First though, my entire focus is on the Double Creek Half. My trainer is helping me build endurance and speed. And I need to get through this race injury free. And then I will seriously consider starting training for my next marathon. Maybe the 3rd Marathon will be the charm?
For those of you who have run a marathon, I think you can identify with this YouTube Video
