While running the Ottawa Half Marathon on Sunday I was grinning ear to ear each time I passed a sign directing the marathoners one way, the half marathoners the other. I have no good memories of running the 2014 full marathon and I was almost giddy at not having to follow that route this year.
While running the last stretch of the half marathon along the canal I told myself maybe I should consider starting to focus on 10k races. Who really needs to run for 2 hours or more???
And today, I picked my next full marathon. Go figure. And I picked Hamilton… seriously.
We runners are nuts!
