Since my return to the blog sphere I haven't yet blogged about running. Don't worry, the running addict in me is still alive and well!
You may have noticed the races listed for 2011 on the right hand side bar, an 8K (this weekend!), a half, a 30K, and the spring culminates with the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon. With vigour, I made my training plan, set out, registered and began running!
Sounds great, right?!
Except although I am amped up to train, I want more.
More marathons that is.
I usually run a marathon on the March break, and then another in the May, sometimes two.
But I am often told, Marci you should focus on a specific race, you would run so much faster...
Well I will be honest, I do want to run faster, what runner doesn't? But I also love running marathons, and I also tend to run well when I run multiples.
So I have been casually shopping for a March marathon.
LA Marathon - I ran this last year, and it kicked my butt!! Seriously this course was a downhill quad killer, but incredibly fun!! I also want to go back and tour around LA a little more. It was the only marathon I have ran where there were volunteer drag queens at the water stations, and soy milk was given out on the course. (hilarious- who can stomach soy milk while running a marathon?)
Georgia Marathon - This would be another state for me (state number 9). I'll admit I am not that excited by this race, but maybe someone from the area or who has run it before can change my mind.
Or maybe I should just stick with the plan, and train hard for Cincinnati.
