A story of going from being a non-runner to planning for a marathon in three years...

October Wrap Up


It occurred to me, halfway through November, that I never did a monthly summary for October. Maybe because the big event in October was running my first marathon and I felt as though I've already said everything I want to say about that?

Maybe because I spent the first part of October dealing with a knee issue?

Perhaps it was because there wasn't much of anything else worth noting? Except, I suppose, the hilarious Corn Maze "5K"?

In all honesty, I think my lack of things to say is due more to burnout than anything else. I ran approximately 80 miles in October. So far it's two weeks into November and I've run a total of 13.5 miles. Of course, some of that is because I just spent the last week in San Francisco for mostly work and some play and didn't get a chance to run. Even though I brought my running clothes my schedule just didn't play nicely. Which is too bad because I hear running through Golden Gate Park is lovely.

Taking the week off was kind of nice, actually. Since the marathon my motivation to run has been lower than usual, anyway. Is this what they call the post-marathon blues?

Maybe some post marathon blues or maybe you just need a new goal. Have a great week!

Do you think you are so happy to be free from training that you don't feel like running? I know I feel really happy now to run whenever I want and not because I "have" to (of course, I never have to, it's a choice, but you know what I am saying).
