In case anybody gives a shit, IndyRunners.org has THE most comprehensive race calendar in the whole state of Indiana. It’s fantastic because A) it’s not limited to races THEY sponsor, and B) it’s not all convoluted with ads and horseshit like Active.com.
The first two are no-brainers but I have to think really hard about the trail race.
Can I realistically be ready for a trail marathon in two months? Do I really want to get up at the buttcrack and drive the fuck out to Battle Ground, Indiana? Am I going to have to buy new shoes? My feet haven’t touched a trail in months. And I haven’t run more than a half marathon in years. YEARS.
But last week was a good week.
I ran 47 miles and ended with a tough 14 that I had to split up because of a scheduling mishap (my own).

And I guess since the week’s almost over, I may as well share the important details of this week’s training. Then maybe next week I’ll spare you the training report altogether.

Treadmill, treadmill, treadmill. I’m not going to say it’s been hot. It’s been fucking hot all over the country and the last thing we all need is another smug person on the internet acting like they’re all heroic for being alive during a heat wave.
Tomorrow’s the Microbrewer’s Fest, so I’m going to do a short shakeout run in the morning and…see what happens on Sunday.
And I thought I’d try my hand at this whole crowd-sourcing-major-life-decisions-on-the-internet thing: should I run a trail marathon in two months or play it safe and do the half? (And when you’re answering, pretend you LIKE me.)
