I have a secret confession - I am also inspired by Dean Karnazes ever since I watched the Ultramarathon Man movie that details his 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days. How can a runner not be inspired by that? And it wasn't just me. My dear hubby and darling daughter loved the movie too!
Quite a lot! Trust me!
Kaua'i Marathon, for the third year in a row by the way. So this is my chance to meet someone truly inspirational and who cares about kids' fitness too! (That touches the mommy-side of me.) And I already confirmed with him that he won't be able to make it to Maui this year and he suggested I run Kaua'i.
I was amped! But I contained myself since I do have the Maui Marathon on September 18th that I am training for and the Kaua'i Marathon is September 4th. So I looked at my training schedule ready to find a real reason why it wouldn't be feasible. And there is a 12-13 mile run scheduled on the 4th. So, after checking with dear hubby and trying to talk myself out of it a bit more, I am going to Kaua'i to run the half!!!! The downside is this run I am doing alone. My dear hubby graciously said I could and should go and he will stay home with our darling daughter. I owe him big for this one and already said this could be my birthday, anniversary, and Christmas gift this year!
Have you ever spontaneously registered for a race or another endeavor because of your personal passion? How did it turn out?
Oh, and the pain I woke up to yesterday. Gone! I am me again and the extra rest was just what I needed! Trust me, today I woke up feeling rested and rejuvenated so that little twinge ended up being a blessing in disguise!
