There were two moments in time that I wish I could have done differently the night of the race. The first one was when I was checking my gear bag. I wish I would have taken off my long sleeve top and checked it with my gear bag.
|I could have probably done without|
the long sleeve top, calf sleeves,
and the skull cap underneath my other hat.
The irrational side of my brain is wanting redemption. I want to erase the mental anguish of running a bad race. And the only way to do this is to run another race!!! A 5k would be fun, a half marathon would be nice, But, the stupid irrational brain wants another marathon!! ASAP!!!
I'm actually eyeballing the Hoover Dam Marathon next month.
But, this race makes no sense for a PR. It's a tougher course. I think because I'm not really sore anymore, and because I see other bloggers that can race marathons once or even twice a month, this idea is starting to grow legs.... I know I'm being an idiot. But, I feel like I wasted the fall training for a marathon. I might as well run one more before I let my running go to seed.....
The one thing that's standing in the way is money. Like the majority of my readers, I don't receive any freebies. My blog isn't big enough for comped races or free NUUN. I also haven't told my husband that I'm considering the race. Maybe I can swing it as an early Christmas present.
I don't talk about my husband much on the blog. He's actually really supportive of my running, and he understood how bad I felt after not meeting my race goal. He's let me talk his ear off all week on all the little details from the marathon.
I do know for sure that I want a rematch with the RNRLV marathon. It is my home course. I will run another PR on that bitch one day.
