Soul Searching = Changing it Up

15 Aug

I have really enjoyed some of the shorter distance racing that I did this summer (5k, 8k, 10k) and working to increase my overall speed. I will publicly say that I did not enjoy running the Half Marathon this past Spring (shame on me).  I put way too much pressure on myself and it took a lot of the enjoyment out of running and racing. I want to be able to relax and laugh. Not over analyze the course, my paces, heart rate etc. There are times for that and this just isn’t it for me…not now.

Anyway, I have decided to change my Baltimore Half Marathon to a Marathon Relay Team. This will be my first relay and I’m STOKED! We will be a mixed team (2 guys / 2 gals) and also be entering the Corporate Cup with 3 out of 4 of us working for the same company. Right now it looks like I will be the second leg which starts at the Art Museum and ends at the Maryland Science Center. It’s one of the longer legs at 7 miles but I’m feeling pretty confident that I’m gonna rock it.
