Tomorrow goes back to semi-reality for me, as our second semester begins at school. I will most likely get back into posting on just Sundays, as that day seems to work best for a promised post. With this new semester comes not only changes at work (new classes, coaching will begin again) but with my running! I have changed some of the headers on this page to reflect that.
It is obviously now 2014, so I have made a link dedicated to my results from last year, along with a page that will be updated accordingly with results from this year. I have also updated my racing calendar, and this can be found under a new tab also!
I mentioned in my last post about “What’s Next?”. The Calgary Marathon with hopes of Boston Qualifying, the Quebec City visit, the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend with Dumbo Double Dare…..all fantastic destinations to be planning and training for! I neglected to mention a major thing, though, and this is maybe why I am clinging onto this online journal of sorts….
April 25, 2014, will mark the 10th anniversary of my father’s passing. Dan and I will be in Quebec City that very day. We didn’t necessarily plan it that way exactly, it was just when Spring Break fell this year…the fact we will be in the place of his birth on the anniversary of his death…I don’t even know what to say. Or to think. Or how to prep myself.
There will be a lot of self-reflection in the next couple months. My intense training will keep my mind off of it, but you can definitely guess what will be going through my mind during those long, lonely training runs.
Thanks for all your support!
