You gotta get up and try

My foot is basically fine, I'm having motivation problems and apathy. The best remedy for that is obviously The Chicago Marathon!!!!!! It's expensive and I don't know if I want to commit to another full after Cincinnati, yet I gotta try! I was planning to enter the Marine Corps lottery and then play Chicago if the Marines didn't pick me, but Chicago moved their lottery way early to December. No time for fence sitting. If Chicago picks me, it's a super great experience. If they don't pick me, I save $500 in entry fee, hotel and travel. I can't lose :)

Columbia City - The 5th time

The sun was sooooo bright!!!!
I registered for Columbia City's half marathon way back on January 1. For that day only, it was $40. No brainer, right? 11 months later....

My foot is basically ok, my training has been a wreck because I'm having trouble with motivation, especially as it gets colder and dark so early.

It was cold, I finished. My time was abysmal, but I finished, that's what matters. Half marathon #17? 16? Somehow I remember everything about the fulls, but the halfs are a blur of half memories.

Shirt was the same Brooks design as last year, but orange this time, medal is always the same, we got Brooks socks this time around :) Nice little trip. See you next year!!
