Now as we head towards the month of August I can sleep until 5:30 instead of 4:10am and rest up for a week or two. No I can't!!!! I love waking up before the sun and being exercising it makes me happy and I escape from the world while I do so. What is next?? I have the Surftown half marathon in September, a marathon in October location TBA, and a few duathlons all fall. I also have a long term goal, I want to run The North Face 50k at Bear Mountain (a promise I made to myself after interviewing Stephen England) I want to run the race for personal reasons but if I never ran it I feel like I would be letting Mr. England down, when someone is such an inspiration you have to try your best to be like him or her even though I will never be close to running at the times that he does.
The good news is that I can complete the half and full marathon while training for the 50k. That training starts tomorrow and I believe it will be a smooth transition because of all the cycling that I did in July. My body feels very strong, I'm worried about my IT band a bit but have been stretching and rolling it like a mad man. I'm looking forward to the training and can't wait to see the results!! Never stop working towards a goal!!!
