I have never been one to do anything half way. I’m an “all or nothing” kind of girl. This attitude is how I approached my first marathon. I trained according to plan and a few weeks into training I though “why not register for another!” The first marathon (Rock N Roll New Orleans) went great. In hindsight, scheduling a second marathon three months after my first was probably not the best idea. I realized the training for the second marathon was not going well, but when I commit to something, I commit! I did complete the second marathon, dragging myself across the finish line, and had a nice little hip injury as a souvenir.
Did I learn from my mistake? Of course not! As I was recovering and in physical therapy I registered for three more half marathons.
Physical therapy is going well and now I am about to start training sloooowwwly for the Women’s Half Marathon in September. Hopefully I will be a little smarter this time.
