I am going to take a break this fall from marathons. I want to work on building up my strength and preparing for an amazing PR. I had so many running pains this training season and felt like I could prevent all this if I spent some time developing other muscles. I also need to fit in some time for studying for my professional engineer (PE exam) which I would like to take next April.
But, I haven’t even finished half of my marathon recap and I have decided on my next race! The New Orleans Rock ‘n Roll marathon!
One of my ultimate goals has always been to get to a 3:00 marathon. The New Orleans marathon is super flat, and could be an opportunity to PR. I know I can’t get to a 3:00 marathon by next year, but I know that I can’t get there if I don’t try. So I’m going to keep trying. The day I get to that 3:00 marathon, I will propose to Dave on the spot (if he hasn’t done so already ).
SOOOO….WHO IS RUNNING THIS RACE WITH ME?! There is a half marathon too!!! My mission is to get lots of people to run this so that we can party afterwards!!
