This year has been more about satisfying my wanderlust vs. adding to my PR list. It was time to give my mind and legs a little break from the grind. After three straight years of being in all-out marathon-mode from August – October, I wondered what a DC summer might be like when I’m not obsessively stalking humidity levels, desperately rehydrating with Nuun or mapping out 20+ milers around the Mall.
From what I’ve gathered, the no-marathon summer looks more like this:
And these summers fly by when there’s no training plan deciding your weekends! Fall is fast approaching, and when I got a note about joining the Runners World Half & Festival, my first thought was “FINALLY! I. can. run. this.” (i.e. I don’t have anything else on my agenda).
But why just “run”? Why not go all out? 2013’s attitude checked in.
So, for my next trick….
I have no races on the schedule yet, so why not cram three of them into one weekend? And why not do them with the Runners World team?!
YEAH. I’m IN.
