I decided I wanted to run 38 miles on my 38th bday. This brilliant idea stayed in my head until I ran the Top of Utah Half Marathon and had a fabulous race but also remembered how much it hurts to run 13 miles let alone 38! I also started to wonder if I really wanted to devote that many hours of my birthday to running instead of enjoying my family.
I decided to run 38 miles within my birthday week - 8 yesterday, 12 tomorrow, 4 Monday, and 14 on Tuesday. I hope you're not all disappointed in me but give me a break, I'm getting old!
So what do you think - smart plan or I wimped out?
