I have been bugged for the last few weeks.
There is something deep inside me that is screaming - run another marathon.
I thought I'd be one and done. But, nuh-uh.
I thought that halfs would suffice - enough to keep me training and active but, nope.
I want more.
So today I started training for a marathon. I'm not sure which one or where yet. I can run the full at the Jersey Shore in early May (that would be poetic as it was the site of my first half marathon and holds a special place in my heart). Or I'm considering Sugarloaf in Maine per the suggestion and twitter "c'mon" of my blogging buddy Jen at Miles, Muscles & Mommyhood. My training program on Nike takes me thru June 5th so i figure anything between the first week of May and then should be OK since we're still in November.
I really want to run NYC but who knows when the lottery is gonna open and who says I might not just do that too if I get in?
So, 16, 18 and 20 mile long runs here I come.
Get Road Runner (my running store) on the horn, I'll need a box of Gu and Sports Beans.
And I hope my favorite gatorade is on sale because there's gonna be a lotta training going on up in here.
I've been accused of sometimes looking before I leap but the truth is, I believe that you do have to look before you leap but there comes a point where you just have to leap or you could miss your opportunity to jump.
See ya at the finish line and at every mile in-between.
What marathons are you doing?
Do you have any to recommend for the time frame I've mentioned?
