I’m a runner. I ran 5 marathons before I turned 30 and I am currently training for my 6th. But lately, I haven’t loved running. This summer was a rough one. Not only did I end a serious relationship, but the heat and humidity made getting in the runs a struggle, more so than in previous years. So I’ve been half-assing it this summer. This is the least I’ve ever trained for a marathon, and I’m not proud of it. This marathon, on October 2nd (the Wineglass Marathon) looks to be one of the slower ones I will do, simply because I haven’t put in the time or effort. Last year I was hoping to break 4 hours in the NYC marathon. This year, I’ll be happy to be under 5.
