I was going to quit blogging due to chronic lack of time. Not sure I’ll do much, but here and there I still update once in awhile. I’ve been posting pics on intsagram, as I much prefer it to facebook. But it’s not really a good place for race reports, so blogging it is!
After my marathon and some reflection time, I realized I picked a really hard race to get a good time (time trial almost), I was a little under the weather with a chest cold, and the hard fact is even if I had gotten my goal time I probably won’t be able to run Boston 2018 due to a work obligation. So after a couple weeks, I moved on. I had some very successful workouts and the full time change in weather meant things felt a little easier ( funny, now that change is too much, 21 degrees this am!). I ran the Decker half and even though on paper my time isn’t great, it was about 10 minutes faster than last time I ran it, and I managed some hardware, mostly due to a generous awards structure, it I’ll take it.
And the biggest news……my credit card was charged $195………because I got into the Chicago marathon! Whoop , whoop!! I bucket listed this one awhile ago. Over the last year or so I’ve several moments of realizing Jaspy isn’t a baby anymore and it’s time to do a couple things on my list. This made it pretty easy for me to make a 2017 running schedule…3M half, Austin full pacing , the Austin 10/20 10 mile race and then Chicago. I’ll throw in a couple 5ks but that’s it. I love planning trips and I’ve already been mapping out my Chicago agenda. Only 10 more months….giggle.
Next blogging goal is a 2016 wrap up…..hopefully.
