What does this mean?
- I get four extra weeks of training.
- I can do my longest training run in October after my epic 60 days of travel.
- The weather will be much cooler on race day.
- I can roll out of bed and run this marathon.
This decision feels right to me. It’s the first decision I’ve made in ages that feels easy. I will run City of Oaks and defer Chicago’s entry until 2017. And I’ve already signed up to visit Mary Ellen Slayter and run the Louisana half-marathon with her in January 2017. Next year is already busy.
So I’m feeling good about the race calendar. And the good news is that I’ll be injury-free and stronger for being able to flex and change my plans!
I’m ready for the fall. Whoo hoo!
