I’ve been waiting a few days to announce my next challenge!
It’s taking place here-
It’ll be round 2 of 2012 half marathons!
I have signed up for the Chicago Monster Dash half marathon!
After finishing my last race I asked myself, “Now what?”
Add a third half marathon medal of course! I figured while I have the training and mileage behind me, I might as well forge on for the rest of the year.
Finding a training plan for someone who just did a half marathon a week ago and plans to run another in 8 weeks is a tiny bit difficult. I’ve been tailoring my own schedule based off of a Hal Higdon training plan. I have been assessing my running post-Madison Mini to where my body is at physically.
My other battle is my new shoes.
Going from gts 11 to gts 12 should have been a smooth transition. However, my left foot is not happy. I need to find out my options within 48 hours. Darn myself for buying running shoes from a store that is over an hour away from me! I knew I was taking a risk!
So runners are encouraged to dress up in Halloween costumes for this race. I have a few ideas but will not be going to any extremes (this is just nuts). Should I wear a costume it will feel no different from my usual running apparel.
