As I sit here writing this post, I’m smiling because it’s race weekend again. Just 2.5 weeks ago, I raced my 26th half marathon and in 4 short days, I’ll be running my 27th half. 🙂 And on a side note, in a year or so, I’ll have run as many half marathons as the years I’ve made it around the sun. Exciting, right? 🙂
Anyway, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated you all on my plantar fasciitis and the reason is that it’s because I still have it. LOL. I didn’t want to spend posts and posts complaining about it so I just stopped posting about it. The pain is better, but it unfortunately is still lingering. On bad days, it sucks to run and on good days, I feel like I’m super woman and would contemplate signing up for another marathon or even a 50k. Yes, I said a 50k. I’m that crazy.
I haven’t committed to anything yet because it’d be silly of me to sign up for anything longer than a half. I mean I’m silly to even run a half, but honestly, I’m going a little stir crazy so racing half marathons is my way of coping. Counter intuitive I know, but hey, whatever works. Haha
So yes, let’s get back to race week. I’m totally not tapering because well, you can’t really taper much if you’ve only been logging in 20ish miles a week. LOL. It’s a little discouraging, but I’m still hopeful that the second half of the year will be better than the first. 🙂
My “training” for this race has been pretty good surprisingly. I’ve done a few training runs up hill recently and my calves aren’t as tight as they used to be. Thank you plantar and my PT for hours of stretching. 🙂 I think I can manage running up the king of the mountain hill, but if not, I’ll make sure to capture it on IG stories as I walk up it. 😀 I’m hoping to beat my time of 2:00:01 two years ago, but if I don’t, it’s not a loss. 🙂 I just want to run and if I can, it’s still a win. ^_^
Question for you: How many half marathons have you run? Do you have a goal of how many you’ll run in your lifetime? 🙂 Me? I’m thinking at least 50 halfs and maybe 20 fulls. That’d be a satisfying number for me.
And if you haven’t signed up yet and want to race last minute, use code BIBRAVE10 for $10 off the half and BIBRAVE5 for $5 off the 5k.
