With only 18 days until the Nike Marathon…. what better time to start training than… um… TODAY! YAY!
I ran 3.4 miles outside this morning before work and it felt amazing.
It’s no surprise that I’ve been less than motivated to train for this race. I took some time off from running this summer and just never really felt like I wanted to start again. Marathon training is completely draining. I busted my butt to train for Boston and I think it took a lot out of me. Plus, I had the post marathon blues when I was done. I was so sad it was over!
I’ll take a less ambitious approach to this year’s Nike Marathon, no real goal in mind. Under 3 hours would be amazing, but it’s pretty unlikely because I don’t want to hurt myself either. This will be my 6th year running this race! I’m getting pretty excited for it.
So from now until then… I’ll try my best to be less lazy and little more excited about getting out the door and running. There’s no time like the present, right?
