Admittedly, the biggest question on my mind since completing that 26.2 doozy just under two weeks ago.
While it feels like it was only two weeks ago, it also feels like a lifetime ago. I owe that, in part, to a full recovery zero week, followed thereafter with a complimentary upper respiratory infection (apparently that's common after running a marathon), that has still left me with 0 miles on Daily Mile since February 3. You can only imagine how antsy that's making me.
Despite that, I've got a few things coming up that I'm excited about and looking forward to - and, as always, a few I'd like to add, but we'll cross that bridge when I feel 100% again. I really want to run the Scenic City Half up in Chattanooga next weekend, but with this infection lingering and having not run at all in nearly 14 days, I'm not sure my legs are up for the challenge. And while the race is rather cheap ($50!), I'd still like to make the adventure worth it.
Tomorrow, I'm supposed to be running this:
Taste of Athens 10K | February 16
Junior League Atlanta Shamrock 'n Roll 10K | March 10 | Atlanta, GA
And then, of course, the last major Georgia race I want to do, the Publix Half, on St. Patrick's Day. The medals are super fabulously green, shamrocks, and glittery - all things we know I love. Pretty excited about it and planning some fabulous green glitteryness for myself for the day of. What better opportunity than a race on St. Patrick's Day, right?
Publix Georgia Half Marathon | March 17 | Atlanta, GA
That's it for the next few weeks at least. There's a TON more on my radar, but with a number of things up in the air right now, I need to carefully play it by ear! Runner problems indeed.
What are you up to this spring? Any fun races coming up?
