What I should be doing...
I mean, I'm not trained for it, AT ALL. I will likely spend a lot of the day walking the hills and hating my life. I was pretty convinced by the end of my run on Sunday that I was just going to bail on the race this weekend.
But, I have been bailing on my running for awhile now. I was supposed to run the full in Cincinnati in 2014, and I just ran the half. I was supposed to do R2R2R at the Grand Canyon in 2014 and I just did the R2R. I was supposed to run the full in South Carolina in March 2015 and I just did the half. And sadly, there are probably others that I'm not thinking of right now. So, bailing has kind of been my MO lately and frankly, I need to snap out of it.
Is it going to hurt? Yup.
Is it going to be boring? Yup.
Is it ridiculous? Yup.
Is there a guarantee that I'll finish? Nope.
So... yeah, here I come marathon. It's not going to be pretty, but dammit, I'm going to do it.
