Definitely Losing My Mind

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!

      Haven’t registered yet but probably will this weekend before I lose my nerve. I want one more go at it since my last one at Ottawa Race Weekend last year was such a bad experience. I want to do one like I did in Toronto – not fast but felt good at the end. Hoping the downhill/flat course along with cool temperatures will set me up for success.

          Hey Rod – I think it is great that you are encouraging Kristi in the Marathon – but a warning – if you start talking to her about Ultra races I’m personally driving to Toronto to have a “discussion” with you! 🙂

            I solemnly swear. May God withhold a BQ time from me otherwise.
