Still running but not for the half

Thursday, August 02, 2012

I've been going back and forth on doing the Crazy Horse half marathon and I had thought that I would be able to do it but now I don't think it will work. It's a busy weekend, Friday is Band Day, we usually have around 20 schools here to perform and this year we don't have school but I have heard teachers have inservice. Then Saturday I have a volleyball tournament and extend to get done later in the afternoon. So I would have to leave to go across the state after the tourney, getting west river probably around 8 pm. The race starts at 8 am and after the race I would have to drive back home, about a 5-6 hours and then get back into a regular school week. I know that it sounds a little whiny but after talking with my hubby I just think I would be stretching myself too thin. This time of year is just crazy for me anyway with school and volleyball so I'm just going to keep up my running and look for a race dent spring that will work better in me schedule.
All other things are going ok I'm working on my nutritional side and seeing some results, just slow but slow and steady is best. emoticon
Have a great day and thanks for stopping in!

    Thanks for the positive comments, I really was on the fence on not doing the race, so I'm glad that it wasn't the totally wrong idea. emoticon emoticon s

    I think you are making a very wise decision! That would just be added stress with school starting! Hugs!
