On a different subject altogether; I’m looking forward to the end of the marathon season. The training has become a chore and although I’m certainly healthier because of it, I’m looking forward to a more relaxed schedule in October. I’m still looking at the last two marathons with optimism, but now I’m thinking about changing my style to ½ marathon distances. I will have done 6 marathons in my life and millions of people never do one…so I’m OK with that. And ½ marathon distances are so much easier to train for; and I can still hit the big marathon sites, like Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, etc. Just being part of the event is great. I really do love being around marathoners! Running or walking, marathoners are a special kind of athlete.
