It’s the new season.
You can feel it in the air. You can smell the crispness in the October sky. You can see the leaves changing and watch the darkness overtake the day.
It is a new season.
Of course, with this being Vegas, we have no seasons!
There are no leaves (just Palm trees).
There is no crispness just cold air (soon to be followed by 80+ air next week).
Regardless…it is a new season. And the blogsphere is alive with new training. Can you feel it? Can you read it?
It’s MARATHON season!
It seems that EVERYONE I read is training for a marathon or just did one (or ten!) an ultra (or ten!).
I think it’s because of the cold and the darkness. Things that make bike riding miserable, but aren’t too bad for runners.
The cold and the darkness…Perfect environment for slow, plodding runs that last forever and never seem to have an ending.
I must admit. It sounds fun!
I think that I need to try out at least 1 or 2 marathons before CDA.
Have you checked out JT’s blog? He blew me away with this one! Awesome medals, great area, and a beer GARDEN. Not just a tent but G-A-R-D-E-N!
Now that sounds worth running 26 miles for (but not the 0.2)!
Oh! It’s not like I’ve given up on the Triathlon thing. I’m still biking and running and I drink water (HEY! That still counts right?)
Last weekend I biked another 56 even included the three sisters just to make it a good workout. And NO! I did not stop midway. Thank you very much.
Fearing that come race day, I would be a floundering fish, the Mrs. has forced me to swim. So I’ll be hitting the lake and hopefully follow it up with a long run. I also plan to ride the Silverman course again.
Wish me luck!
Go Stef! She's gonna rock this Pumpkinman!
