Do I meet me half(marathon)way?
Saturday, May 04, 2013
I am on the fence. I have my ticker set up to count down to the High Desert Half Marathon, which is May 25th, but I have not yet registered. Robie Creek was two weeks ago, so tomorrow ends my running scheduled moratorium, though my ankle might have the last word on that. Tomorrow I may try a short easy run and see what my foot/ankle say about it after the way I punished them on the Robie downhill.
The problem is that I'll be in Reno working 12+-hour days all week prior to HDHM, we'll finish up at noon on Friday, and then drive 7 hours home. Do I really want to pry myself out of bed the next morning and run 13.1 (hilly) miles? Not sure, but aside from an in-town HM in July, this will be about my last chance to race before Payette Lake in September. Part of me says to just go and have fun, while my competitive side says don't bother, you won't be at your best.
I can't decide!
