Then I read one of Hal's tweets: "Join me at the Blue Grass Half Marathon in Lexington, KY on March 30, a run through Horse Country. I'm doing the 7. http://www.runthebluegrass.org/ "
Why oh why oh why did I read that??? I want to go meet Hal!!!! He'll be at the expo and I really want to meet him!
Yet it makes NO rational sense to drive 5 1/2 hours and pay close to $100 to run something I could run at home. Assuming I did it, would I even hang the medal on my hanger? Or is that reserved for full marathon medals? If I commit to a marathon in every state, this wouldn't even count because I would do 50 MARATHONS, not halfs, so I'd have to go back to Kentucky anyway.
What to do...What to do?
As with anything running related, I hashed it out with Indy.
I texted this morning, "HAL is going to be at a half in Lexington on March 30. He says to run 12 that weekend anyway. I rly want to meet him, but do I break my no half streak??"
"It's Hal - you should break it for your running guru. Soooooo obvious an answer. Don't doubt yourself. It's Hal!" he said.
When I mentioned it not making any sense because I could run it at home, he had an answer for that as well, "Makes perfect sense. It's Hal!"
Ooooooh I don't know! It won't interfere with work in any way, and I would be home in time for Easter Sunday church. It's not rational, not at all, but it's HAL!!!!
