Training is winding down. There are NINE DAYS to the race. I am ready to get this torturous task finished. Between a sore hip and general disinterest in competition, the racing aspect of running has become less and less appealing.
Nevertheless, I have to run at least a few times a week and a long run to be ready for the never-ending 13.1 miles on September 16th.
Running is on the periphery of my life right now. I have so many other things that I enjoy doing or I need to do or that I WANT to do, that it hasn't been a priority.
That's probably a good thing. I can focus on more important things like food and pretending I have a love life.
