I was very disappointed that my husband made the ultimate decision not to stay in Fargo another night. I was looking forward to walking around town, and revisiting the great restaurant we had been to the previous evening, plus a few others we had passed up, not to mention having my post race Manhattan.

As soon as I heard the gun, I started my Runmeter app, only to learn a minute later that it was meant for the wheelchair participants. I quickly cancelled the run, and waited to restart the app once we were on the move.

Fargo Marathon Race Recap – Part 1

For me to say I wasn’t ready for this marathon would be a blatant lie. With all the miles I’d been accumulating up to this point, how could I not be ready? Granted, I only had one long run in this training period, and even that 17.49 miles was a reacher, to say the least. I wasn’t even prepared to undertake the long run that morning. I just let it happen because it had to happen, and the opportunity had presented itself.

The Fourth Time is NOT the Charm. #GetLuckyMN 2017 Race Recap

My husband woke me up one minute before my fitbit alarm was scheduled to wake me.

Huh?

Odd. I guess that means he’s coming with me. I wasn’t quite sure what the story was as it wasn’t discussed in full the night before. My girls had a busy day ahead of them, and if my husband were going to come along, we would have to drop them off at their first stop of the day an hour ahead of schedule. But they assured us it would be OK and that the school would be open. Since that was the case, we all loaded up at 7am and were on our way.

Was I Ready to Get Lucky?

These days, I’m not as anal about running events as I used to be. In fact, it is safe to say the thrill is gone. More than likely it is because I haven’t been thrilled about my running.
