Eighteen days left until the CIM, and I’m already losing sleep over it. I want to qualify for Boston so that I can enjoy future races without this damn qualifying time hanging over my head. Whether I actually get to run Boston is beside the point. I just need to prove to myself that I can do it. Quite honestly I’m not all that keen on traveling all the way to Boston just to run a marathon. I have so many more I want to run (e.g., Napa, Newport – OR, Big Sur, St. George) because of their beautiful sceneries.
Just a while ago I signed up for the Surf City Marathon in Huntington Beach in February 2014 for no other reason than the pretty medal and finisher tee.
Crazy right? But I just want to really start enjoying the races without the pressure.
