And The Definition Of Insanity Is…

I’m beginning to believe more and more that I’m allergic to winter. I’m not sure why I struggle so much with everything from my training, to my weight, to the constant fatigue, and my psychotic behavior from January to May, with no other logical explanation than it is a seasonal allergy of the worst kind.

Lola’s Half Marathon 2017 Race Recap – Part 2

Bling from Lola's Half Marathon 2017

This is Part 2. Part 1 is here!

I remember this stretch of road from last year, but I don’t remember it being so early in the run. This scared me a little because I was thinking, “Damn, I’ve got a long way to go!”

It was here we began to meet up with the 10-milers. They had a 10 minute head start on us, so this seemed like the place to run into them, around miles 5 through 6. This was a larger highway, so there wasn’t much fan support. I remember last year having to put some body glide on my legs as they were really chaffing. I must have done a good job putting it on this year, because so far so good, even though it was 10-15° warmer than 2016.

I have but two words to describe my performance in Lola’s Half Marathon 2017.

I could have been arrested for any number of traffic violations since I was basically under the influence of hell.

Marathon #7.

You’d think by now I’d be over getting the post marathon blues. But noooooooooo…

Here we are, post marathon, deep in the midst of depression. This is SO bizarre.

Hey! What a novel idea! Let’s write a race recap on the actual day that the race was run! This is something I used to do as a novice blogger. But now, finding the time to do it after running the race is a struggle.

Or perhaps it is just because I’m lazy.

No matter.
