I am also thankful that November and December are dry months for racing. Why you may ask when I LOVE to race? Well, as I begin this rebuilding period of running I am sure that racing is not what the doctor had in mind when he said I could begin running again. The night before I began I dreamed that I was at a start line of a half marathon for my first run. I knew I shouldn't be doing it but in my "dream world" I was going to run it but not race it! Yeah, right! So it is just as well that the turkey trots don't tempt me and the only race in December is on December 31st. I missed two months already in my quest to race every month (I did accomplish this in 2009) so no pressure there. So I am just going to run with no major agenda other than to listen to my body, begin to run a little faster and take those rest days!
But truthfully I would rather be:
Running a 5K
Or a 10 K (this is my hubby behind me, notice
I said behind)
Or a 15K
Or even a cold half marathon in February
Perhaps a fall marathon
Rather than a spring marathon
(isn't this pretty - come
But no, I will not race. Thank goodness there are not a lot of races right now or I would certainly be tempted to throw caution to the winds............and race!
