08/04/2014 A little time off never hurt anyone!

Well, it's been a bit of a vacation for me from running, etc. for the last couple weeks.  I simply felt like a break.  I am comfortable in the fact that I will not wilt from taking a little time off and I know my body appreciates it as well.  Following my last event, I needed some time away to recharge, rest, and do a little reflecting.  

I am not sure what I want from my racing these days.  I am still figuring it out.  In the last year, I have run up and down a mountain over and over.  I have done some 5K's.  I have done a half marathon.  I have done a full marathon.  I have also contemplated a 50K.  I honestly enjoying racing any and all distance.  However, it can be difficult to train with such a wide variety in mind.  

I am currently trying to decide on my racing schedule (tentative) for the upcoming year.  As a teacher, by year, I mean September 2014 through June 2015.  The only absolutes right now are a marathon somewhere and the Ridgewood Run 2015.  

Over the next week or so, I am going to look online for some interesting choices (choices that fit in the family schedule as well!) and set up a schedule of sorts.  I'll keep you posted.
