Some may say I'm absolutely crazy. I've already begun to think about next year's races. Honestly, there is good reason to this. I put the limit on myself this year that I would not run a full marathon because I needed to dedicate my time and energy to student teaching and finishing up my classes. So, I'm getting a bit antsy and dreaming a little.
So far my dreaming has led me to the following races :
-Marine Corps Marathon (Would LOVE to do this one next year)
-Nike Women's Marathon
In other news...
I smacked my knee yet again and have some bruising and tenderness upon movement. Yes...it should be clear by now that I am clutzy. I ran a 5 miler yesterday that turned out alright. A little bit of pain in the knee in the first mile but good after.
I will be running the Lindstrom Loppet this weekend (5k). I run this race every year but have yet to beat my first year's PR of 26 minutes. I highly doubt I will beat it this year as I am more out of shape than ever. BUT I hope to at least do better than my time for the Run of the Mills this year.
I'm assuming my little bro has made it down to Fort Sill and will be doing plenty of running of his own. Perhaps he will run some races with me next summer if he isn't deployed...
