- Hyannis Marathon & Half 2/24: I was going to run the full, but after a month of powerlifting I am unprepared. I ran a few 16s and my first marathon’s longest training run was 18, so I could survive it.. but that would be stupid. Instead I’m going to team up with runslikeapenguin and beat 2 hours on the half.
- Undisclosed Half Marathon 5/12: The weekend before graduation, running a half with my other senior friends that invited me to the half ironman event as prep. I don’t know where it is or specifically when yet. I hope it’s not ON graduation or the week before, finals would be not a fun race period.
- MascomaMan Half Iron Man 7/27: You heard me right. It’s going to be 5 hours of unadulterated endurance racing. This is the day before my partner’s birthday, I hope they still like me after coming to my race and sitting around for that amount of time.
I haven’t really planned past that, I figured getting to biking 56 miles with my poor handling skills AND graduating college between May and the end of July will be a big enough test, and I might just need to exercise casually through the end of August (maybe ride my bike all the time and compound my sweet cycling short tan?). I’d like to do a marathon this year, so perhaps I’ll find a good fall one and kill it, and run out the rest of the year on smaller races (5k-halfs, sprint tris) if I don’t run the full Hyannis on Sunday.
Thoughts? Wanna come to my ironman and hug or something?
