The ULTRA Odds Just Aren't In My Favor!
My big plans for my first Ultra in March have crumbled. The odds just aren't in my favor! However, I'm not letting that get me down. My Ultra Marathon Journey still continues!
I've spend the last couple of days dealing with a massive head cold. I tried running... but barely made it out the door.
Because it's not a decision made from "cold feet"... I feel oddly comfortable with it. Regardless I *WILL* still complete my first Ultra this year! I'm not stopping running. I'm not admitting defeat. I'm just delaying the celebration and extending my journey!
I'm looking at a few local Ultras that take place in the summer. The Aravaipa Running night runs. It'll take some slight tweaking to my training schedule, however, I feel by moving my Ultra back.. I can run my race stress-free and enjoy it! And most of all, I'll be able to celebrate my victory even more.
And don't be fooled Crown King Scramble 50K. I'm coming back for you in 2016! :)
Now tell me... have YOU ever had to step down from a race because you know it was the RIGHT decision? How about ever running a race that looking back you know you shouldn't have?
