I put my money where my mouth is. I registered for the Königsschlösser Romantic Marathon today so I have 46€ that says I'm really going to do it.
I remember sitting at my kitchen table, telling Sarah that running a marathon wasn't something that I wanted to do. Ever. How could I with bad knees? She may or may not have said "We'll see." What I didn't know then was that it was possible to heal my knees.
Maybe I should have picked a big city race like Berlin for my first and maybe only marathon. But, after the Prague half I wanted to head to the countryside. This race will be part road, part trail, and a good deal of it is done at water's edge. I hope to be coherent and comfortable enough to enjoy the scenery.
Today's run was just a slow four miles on trails with some hills. Four miles used to be my long run. Now, I won't do anything shorter until the last week of training.
