Randoms For Your Weekend
I generally don’t do posts over the weekend since that’s when I work. So here are a few things that have been rattling around in my brain lately.
Treadmill long runs are both awesome (done where no one can see you suffering) and terrible (they take even longer than usual if you have kid[s]). Yesterday I ran 22.1km/13.8mi. Inside. The only thing that saved it for me was that I broke it up into three parts. That made it so much less daunting. I totally crapped out on my marathon goal pace section, but did get it kind of in so I’m not too upset.
Zoe, at Run, Zoe, Run, has totally outdone me and compiled a huge list of Team Nuun Hood to Coast applications. I’ll still be more than happy to link you to my list as well! I love that we’re celebrating each other’s entries even though we’re obviously competition.
The BMO Vancouver marathon is in 23 days. I wish I could say that I felt confident about it. I am fully expecting a sad (for me) finish time. Which brings me to the next point: my fall marathon.
I’m currently deciding between two end of September marathons: Surrey, BC, and Bellingham, WA. Surrey is local so my costs would be low. However, it’s the first year and is a double loop. Bellingham is close-ish, but would require either an over night stay or very early border crossing. It is a point-to-point run. The cost of the races are similar. What would you choose? I have a preference, but need some fresh opinions.
Can I just end by saying how happy I am that the sun is out longer? It’s so nice to not be stuck in the dark!
oooh, bullet points!
