It’s just 100 days until the next Cowtown Marathon. My whole running world revolves around the Cowtown. I started just to run that one.
I was going to go all in and live my dream and do the full, but after my last half a few weeks ago, I have had to come to a hard realization. I can still run and fight my condition, but not for 26.2 miles. I had to change my registration from the full down to the half. Surprisingly, that was one of the hardest things I have ever done. The odds are that I only have one more half in me, but we will see where that goes.
Do I still really count as a runner if I can never knock out the full marathon? It is the event that moves you over to elite. On the one hand, I can’t do it. On the other hand, I work harder just to train and complete a half that some do for the full.
Sometimes I just question things too much. All that matters is I have 100 days and I am excited
