I’ve got some big new- a change in my run schedule. Yep, I’m shifting gears again. Last spring I had decided to run the Baystate Half Marathon. Then this summer I mentally switched gears to run the full. I completed several 20 milers, built up my volume and in all reality my body was (and still is) ready to marathon). But during this whole process I had pit in my stomach because racing the marathon wasn’t what I had planned to do. I had planed on racing the half with my athletes. Together we decided it would be our team race. Somehow racing the full marathon didn’t feel right. Then many of us raced Plymouth’s Run to the Rock together in early September and I started to look at racing with my athletes in a different light.
Here’s the race recap I wrote last week for The Run Formula (I company I coach for) for the Run to the Rock half marathon and the real reason why I coach runners:
On Sunday October 16th I will be racing the Baystate Half Marathon in Lowell, MA with six of my athletes!! Less than two weeks till race day!! I’m pumped!
Never stop running,
