On Sunday I ran the Shoreline Half Marathon, which basically serves as my halfway point in this “marathon” of a running year.
I set a few running goals for 2014 and so far, have managed to hit several of ’em:
- I’ve PR’d in the marathon (4:58:16), half marathon (2:03:14) and 10K (56:56).
- I ran 3 full marathons in less than 90 days to qualify for the Marathon Maniacs (#9416).
- I’ve run a half or full marathon every month this year so far (with plans to continue this into 2015).
Well, it’s day three of my “forced” running hiatus following Sunday’s LA Marathon. I figured I needed a few days to mend from the pounding I just did to my poor body (what did it ever do to me). And clearly a little downtime was good, especially since on Monday my sore legs and stiff neck (from sleeping wrong) had me walking around like “Robocop” (the classic one).
“Dead or alive, you’re running with me.”
Over the past 48 hours, I’ve been swimming in a sea of race memories… from checking out my race results online, to grimacing at the “proofs” from MarathonFoto and perusing Facebook for posts and photos from my friends (and also strangers) about the whole race experience.
And apparently feeding my running addiction.
