A Change of Pace

There seems to be good reason for a half marathon race to be on the schedule for this week….boredom. I am exactly half way through marathon training and this week is very much like the middle miles of a race. It is hard to mentally stay in the game. This calls for a change of pace.

Although there were no half marathons close by this weekend, there is a one-mile race tomorrow night. A far cry from 13.1 miles but a race is a race and I’m thinking it will help resolve the doldrums.

I have never run a one-mile race and I vacillate between going all out and just having fun (the benefit is a nearby children’s hospital).

Adding this new topic to the calendar along with the plethora of running topics we have yet to explore leaves lots of things we could discuss. But let’s not.

Instead I thought I’d send a few snapshots from home. Hope you enjoy.

Five more minutes
Dylan in the snow last winter, the best backdrop for a black dog....and the only time in his life I can remember him sitting still.
