Running Again

I love running
I ran my first marathon in January.  I crossed the Disney Marathon finish line at 5:06:04, a bit slower than I had hoped.

So I've decided to run another one.  I hear you're supposed to train 6 months for these things.  That gives me plenty of time for either the Marine Corps Marathon here in DC in October or the Richmond Marathon down by my alma mater in November.  You have to enter a lottery to run the former, so unless I get lucky, I'm probably doing the latter.

I started my training this afternoon.  It was spurred on after I stepped on the scale today.  Holy crap.  How the hell did I put on 10 lbs in two months?

I've been thinking a lot about my next round of training -- just not doing a lot about it.  Back in January I signed up for the Rock n' Roll 1/2 marathon taking place in DC this Saturday.  I ran 9:30 miles today, so we'll see how I do.  I'm not going to push it too hard.  There's no way I'll set a PR, so I'm not going to even try.
