Well, I didn’t run a full marathon and decided to stop at the half. I just wasn’t feeling the distance yesterday and didn’t want to put out an effort. Plus, I forgot my goddamn tags and didn’t notice till a mile in– no official timing now 🙁
I admit, my training had been poor leading up to the race. My focus shifted towards BJJ– What I started as cross-training was quickly becoming my main thing. I’m going to have to figure how to better balance both pursuits.
The day wasn’t a total loss. I managed to run a sub 2 hour half and get a few other PRs. That was actually one of the reasons I pulled the chute– I shouldn’t be settings PRs (other than distance) at my first crack at a marathon.
Anyway, I’ve got another race scheduled for October 9th, 2016 (Valley Harvest Marathon).
Here’s hoping I’m “feeling” the distance that day.
