Tuesday Run Distance: 5.25 miles Run Time 50:00
Yesterday's run felt good but I was a little disappointed with a few things. My legs were like cinder blocks. My pace was so slow despite my great attempts at trying to get my legs to move faster. It was like my upper body and lower body weren't even attached. My upper body was saying "boring! can't you go any faster??" and my lower body was saying "Dude, I'm going as fast as I can here!" So therefore I ended up with the tortoise run again. But it was a beautiful day in the neighborhood and I can't complain too much.
The Decision (Big News!)
As soon as I muster up enough cash for the entry fee, I will be entering the Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon. It is October 18, which gives me plenty of time to train post half marathon. Unfortunately by the time I made the decision to run a marathon, the Twin Cities was full. My extended family is all from Kansas City so the trip won't be bad and I will have a lot more support! Woohoo! That and it kind of fits well with my charity because my grandmother was from Kansas City. I'm still debating on whether I should move my charity to the marathon or leave it on the half though. There is already another Run4NF runner at KC so that could be nice. But anyway, that is my big news. Now, Chris, you in on this one?! I hear marathon screaming your name.
