It’s the last Friday of the month, and that means it’s time to open up the Runfessional! I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for another Runfessions session!
I have to runfess, I’m over winter. The snow hasn’t been horrible (yet), but we’ve dealt with some brutal cold here in the midwest and I’ve had enough. We hit 40 degrees today and it felt like a heat wave.
The London Marathon is in just over nine weeks. I must runfess, that eight-hour time limit does nothing for my motivation to train. I’m trying to be good about it, but you know me.
I runfess, my crazy business travel last month rendered me pretty useless in most every other aspect of my life. With travel to five states and three different time zones in less than a week, I literally lost track of what day it was. While no business travel = no business income, I am happy to have a little bit of a break.
I runfess the more I read about the Balloon Ladies and the early sweeps at the Tokyo Marathon, the happier I am that I didn’t get picked in the lottery this year. While it was my first attempt, all I knew was I had little chance of getting in. As I read more and more discussions online about the many rules including the early sweeps, I’m happy to wait until I have my training back on track before I attempt again next year.
That being said, I runfess I’ve got my fingers, toes, and everything else crossed in hopes I will find out next week that I have a spot in the New York City marathon. I know it’s a tough course but since the race isn’t until November, I will have plenty of time to prepare. Theoretically.
How has your month been? Do you have anything good to runfess? Good luck to everyone running Tokyo next month. I can’t believe it’s almost here!
I will be running the London Marathon on April 28th, raising funds for Whizz-Kidz, an organization that provides wheelchairs and mobility devices for children and young adults.
