Sometimes you just have to admit when you aren’t physically ready for something and, after the recent pain in my foot, I realized that I am just not going to be able to go from a non-runner to a half-marathoner by September 16. Could I run 6 miles and walk the rest, probably, but that isn’t how I want to get my 13.1 sticker. (I am not opposed to walking some, but you gotta at least run half, right?)
Plus, I just found out that NITRO from the old American Gladiators show puts on an obstacle course race. The Gladiator Rock’n Run is on September 8 in Georgia. I am trying to convince my brother to run with me since it is only about an hour from his house.
Coach Crystal is not going to do this one as she IS running the half marathon the next week. The plan is to bring the kids and their cousins out to hear the bands and make a family day out of it while Daddy and (hopefully) Uncle Jeremy trudge through the mud. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
