I just realized that the half marathon that I have been throwing around is on Derrell and mines anniversary weekend and we were supposed to go to Kansas City. I also look at my calendar and realize that I will be in Northern Colorado all week leading up to this race. I know that Derrell would be fine with leaving for KC Saturday evening after I rested for the race and possibly taking MOnday off so that we could have two full days there. But I am wondering if I am putting too much on my plate. I will be coming out of the high altitude and having to drive that evening after getting off a plane, the 2 1/2 hours to Norfolk. I will be incredibly exhausted. The race BEGINS at 7am which means I will have to be up by 5 in order to eat and get dressed. AFTER the race I will have to drive the 2 1/2 hrs home just to get ready to drive three hours to KC. It just sounds all so overwhelming. I am thinking that the 10k sounds more attractive because I will be less exhausted afterwards. It also wouldn't require as much extensive training because honestly, my schedule is so tight with work and wedding stuff and some days I am just exhausted. I may be able to talk Derrell into coming to Norfolk with me so that we can leave to KC from there. I don't know. I feel like I could finish, albeit weakly, but I want to be able to come home and kill over and knowing that we have planned this weekend for months now and Derrell is looking forward to it so much, makes me hesistant to committ to the half.
