Goofy 19.4/Wine & Dine Half Marathon 3.4

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Okay, so I'm a day or two behind in blogging, as usual, so this is from yesterday's training run. I had a quick 3.31 mile spin around the neighborhood, and it was hot, hot, hot out there! Grateful for the warmth and sunshine, though, since in a couple of months, when it starts to get cold and even snowy, I'll be wanting the summer weather back!! I thought a lot about 9/11, mainly how I'm in shock and disbelief that it was TEN years ago, yet the memories remain as raw and vivid as ever. My plan for this morning would be to run 9.11 miles, as part of a group of Facebook friends running 9.11 to remember 9/11/01, and then spectate at today's Ironman Wisconsin. Also, I contemplated some plans to alleviate my intense raceday cravings...a possible road trip to run the Fox Cities Half Marathon next weekend. The decision isn't 100% yet, but I'm seriously considering it, especially since I'm due for a 14 mile training run that same day. Things that make you go hmm.

    RB, do it! I was so tickled with myself that even when there was just run runner behind me during the NewBo HM I still stuck at training pace during the HM. With all the looooong long runs you have coming up, why not? Help out a charitable running event and collect bling in the end. To me, its a win-win situation. sorry about your car problems yesterday. I feel so badly for you and in downtown Madison too.
