Back to Rocket City
After the NYCM was cancelled, I was pretty certain I wouldn’t be running a marathon for quite some time. I have a spot for the Louisiana Marathon in Baton Rouge in January but I was planning on switching to the half distance. Even this weekend, I was convinced that I would just spend the rest of the year focusing on non-training plan runs and my Fitmixer bootcamp workouts.
Then, I read one too many amazingmarathon recap posts. I read posts from my coach whose love of running is infectious. I scoured the interwebs for marathons that fit my budget, my location and my schedule. No such luck.
Yesterday, as fate would have it, Fleet Feet Huntsville posted that they would be opening up 50 spots Wednesday morning for the Rocket City marathon for those whose NYCM entries were cancelled due to the storm.
Rocket City worked in my schedule; I’ve run it twice before and love the race; all of my husband’s family lives there (hint, hint – come cheer me on!) and it was just too good to pass up.
December 8th – marathon #4 – Rocket City marathon #3 – it’s on!!
