After my full marathon, I was in pain. If I am being honest, that race took away a lot of my passion for running. I have stuck with it, but none of my races have been great. My times have been slower. *And*, I have been packing on the pounds. I gained about 20 pounds during training. And I have added another 20 since then.
Being heavier makes running so much harder.
Anyhow, being fatter and slower still hasn’t stopped me from at least trying.
Today I ran another half marathon.. I think it was #10?
No records were broken.
But, I wasn’t either!
This course was hilly and involved gravel & lots of dog poop. But, I didn’t let it beat me.
I ran that race.
I rocked that race.
Tomorrow, I start watching my diet again. This will be restart 283 or so. But, at least I am trying.
My next half is already planned.. I have a good 6 months to get a few pounds off and pound a lot of pavement.
