I’ve kind of been a little stuck on how to write up my half marathon. In many ways, the day was fabulous. I enjoyed the company of my dear friend, Cindy. We somehow managed to park near the start, and completely skirt the rainy weather during the race. But the pain that kept me away from running for the past 6 months decided to give me a challenge for the day. It forced me to take it easy and stick to the most level parts of the road. I can’t figure out what to make of it.
Desperate to find a work-around, I have been piecing together my quick build to the half marathon. Perhaps it was too quick of a ramp up. Maybe it was the pavement…or the shoes. Who knows? I just know that I don’t want to stop running again.
