I am linking up with Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. It is that time of the month to get everything off your chest.
This coming Sunday will be 3 weeks since I have run the New York marathon.
I am still on my marathon high. It was such a once in a lifetime experience. I broke down and bought ONE photo. I would have liked more but the full package was close to 90 dollars. I paid close to 30 for ONE photo, but it was so worth it.
I runfess that I feel I still have bragging rights. I have proudly worn my NYC race Tshirt….
….and may have even brought my medal to work to show my colleagues.
I runfess I am very up in the air about a next big race. I am happy to have no training plan but am itching for a goal. I should say I NEED a goal. I don’t function well without one. I feel loss and like I am floating. But I runfess I am feeling frustrated. There aren’t any races that really strike my fancy in the spring. The Paris half marathon is the weekend I will be away at my global conference, beginning of March. And most of the iconic Parisian races are in the fall. For the moment there are 2 half marathons on my radar, but neither are in / around Paris.
Annecy Lake half on April 30. This is a huge lake in the Alps and the half marathon runs along the water for most of it. It is a 6+ hour drive from where I live so I would have to make a weekend out of it. Working on my husband who thought he would get out of coming with me to race weekends in 2017. Ha.
The other option I am looking at is a half marathon around Azay le Rideau. It is in the Loire Valley and would be much closer. But I have wanted to go to Annecy for years. Decisions, decisions !
I runfess… I do not like running 5Ks, but have signed up for one, in my home town in February. It was either that or the 15K. The 15K is two loops, which I am not particularly a fan of. So I 5K it will be.
I runfess that I have not thought about signing up for another marathon. In the future ? Maybe but for the moment, no interest.
Have you ever brought a race medal to work ?
How long after a big race or accomplishment, do you think you have bragging rights ?
