I am not going to do the Zooma Women’s Half Marathon on November 16th. I signed up a long time ago and for whatever reason, moving, vacation, pure laziness, I haven’t trained for it. I know that I can’t just jump into a training plan with a month to go. I have been running still, but not really longer than 4 miles at a time. I’m pissed off at myself but I think I would be even more mad if I tried to do it and got a shitty time. So, what I have decided to do is switch to the 5K instead. I wish they had a 10K, but they don’t. I’m just going to let this be a lesson to myself. A lesson that if I shell out the money, I need to commit myself. I just hope I can rock that 5K.
I’ve never backed out of a race before. I’ve always pushed myself to train. I’m not sure why this time was different and it feels horrible.
