Unlike most normal people, on the morning of Labor Day I woke up early. Earlier than I would have woken up to go to work, now that I think about it. If you know me, you know that I am 100% not a morning person. So, why did I wake up so early? To run. (I also don’t normally do that in the mornings.) But in this case, I made an exception, because it was the second race in the RunDallas Race Series. I made it to Globe Life Park, where the Texas Rangers play, and ran the coolest race I have run to date. It was great scenery as we ran right next to the Six Flags theme park, around the ball park, through the Hall of Fame and came out at the third base line. It. Was. Awesome.
In other news, my training progress last week was anyting but. If anything, it showed me that I need to get serious about this marathon or I am never going to make it. My biggest issue is to actually follow my carefully laid out schedule, and remember that it is in place so that I won’t injure myself. Goals: follow the schedule, stop being lazy and run!
