I am planning to participate again in the Des Moines half marathon (21 kilometers) this October. I confess, I have been slacking on my running (I always find reasons not too: it’s too cold, it’s too hot, I’m too tired, I’m too busy, I’m too lazy……). For the past 10 months, the longest I have run is 5K (and that’s far in between in occasion). Well, I have 2 more months to prepare for this.
Time to put on Hermes’ shoes of speed, Rocky’s unfading endurance, and my own iron determination. For a start, I ran 10K yesterday. Just don’t ask me how long it took me. Let’s just say I started when the sun was just rising, and finished before the sun sets.
Now I am aching for a foot massage.
