I quit Running (marathons) Kinda

After the LB Marathon I was very confused about where to take my running. Sure, I accomplished my big 2011 goal = sub 4 but I still walked hobbled away from the race with my confidence shaken. during the race I made deals with myself that included, “Keep running now and you will never have to do this again!”

Hey, that was a better deal than – “Just lay down right here so the ambulance can give you a ride home.”

My lovely partner in the Pysch Ward: A Memoir – book Review
My lovely partner in the Pysch Ward : A Memoir
by mark Lukach

Audio book review of the best selling memoir released 2017.

Is it a good listen?
I’m sharing a quick review of the book available on Audible.

From Amazon:

A heart-wrenching yet hopeful memoir of a young marriage that is redefined by mental illness and affirms the power of love.

Mark and Giulia’s life together began as a fairy-tale romance. They fell in love at eighteen, got married at twenty-four, and started their dream life in San Francisco soon after. but when Giulia was twenty-seven, she suffered a terrifying and unexpected psychotic break that landed her in the psych ward for nearly a month. one day she was vibrant and well adjusted; the next, she was delusional and suicidal, convinced that her loved ones were not safe.

What book or podcast are you listening to now??

What should I listen to next?!

Maratoni edzés 4. napja


I told myself I wouldn’t run another marathon for a very very long time (if ever). I struggled with getting faith in myself again, and wasn’t sure what to do. After the pain of the race wore off I wanted to do it again to prove something to myself, but I’m not sure what exactly. So, I signed up for the surf City Marathon on emotion, not really thinking it out.

Now I want to quit. Kinda.

I had already signed up for the new Tinkerbelle half Marathon on Jan 29th. I was super excited about that race until I remembered it’s the weekend before surf City. now I’m just worried it will tire my legs.

Then, I won Runner’s Rambles contest for the LA half Marathon on Jan. 15th. I had this weird feeling that I was going to win, but thought I’d let fate decide. Well, fate decided I should do it.

And on my run this weekend I saw a sign for a local half marathon I always miss until I see runners in it as I’m doing my normal weekend run. I always say I’ll run it next year. I don’t want to miss running a race on my favorite course so close to my house. It’s Jan 7th a few days after I get back from FL.

Now I have 3 half marathons and 1 full marathon in the next 45 days. I am very dumb. I don’t train for half marathons, so I’m not worried about that – but full marys (almost) kill me so I’m very worried about 26.2 miles!I’ve been struggling with figuring out how to train for the full while traveling for Christmas and training around the 3 half marathons.

Then, yesterday I read 2 articles about how running marathons can slow your times in other distances. So, I slept on it and decided:

1. I will train for the half marathons in January since they are my favorite distance and dominate my schedule. since racing takes more out of me than usual runs I’m cutting back my running to 3-4 days a week depending on if it’s a race week.

2. I will incorporate a few long runs into my training so I will survive the marathon.

3. I will plan a 5k and 10k race for Feb/March/April to reinvigorate my hobby with something new.

Ultimately, I will run the full not fully prepared. but I was very prepared for long beach and it was still extremely hard for me. I think my body is not meant to do that distance? So, I’ll do surf City to potentially end my marathon career where it started   At least that’s my story for now.

I actually feel a substantial relief with this decision because I was dreading the full and stressed about how the halfs would affect my training. now that I realize I’m just looking to finish the full I can enjoy the half marathons. I’m happy with the decision – and since this whole thing is just a hobby that’s the point!

This morning I went to my last boot camp of the season!

Then, I came home and fell asleep again! I am not used to this early wake up call.

Finally it was time breakfast. French toast seemed like a good idea, but it was just okay. I think I need to stick to my strengths – egg sandwiches and scrambles.

Question: have you ever signed up for something and decided you didn’t want to do it afterall? Do you make yourself do it or bow out?
