Change of plans
Monday, October 20, 2008
Well my 10K this past Saturday didn't go too well. It was my 10th race of 2008, and after all the anticipation of the half, mentally I didn't bring it, physically I was exhausted and after that I feel like it's time to take a couple months off from racing and prepare for 2009. And this was a race where I really did need to be 100% "there" mentally, it was 10K full of hairpin turns, and endless hills.
My plans for 2009.
I was planning on doing Around the Bay 30K followed by the inaugural Women's Half...but alas, the Women's Half was sold out, and the race isn't until May 31, 2009! There will be other HMs, but not an inaugural one!
So since I will already be trained for 30K in March, why not go the full 42.2 in May 2009 at the Ottawa Marathon? It is apparently the biggest marathon in Canada, with excellent crowd support (although probably still not quite like Boston or NYC) and Ottawa IS my birthplace...
