I’m out of control. With another 5 days before I run the Moab Half Marathon, I just registered for the Boulder Half Marathon for the following weekend. Why not? Spring training is in full swing. I’d probably do my 12 mile run on East Boulder Trail anyway; might as well get a finisher’s medal for my efforts. Plus I hear they hand out finisher’s shot glasses. That will be a nice compliment to my 100 plus shot glass collection.
And here’s the kicker. When I’m standing in the Moab starting corral with my friends, and Keith asks me what pace I plan to run, I’ll respond, “Around eight and a half minutes Keith. I don’t want to push too hard cuz this is just a warm-up for next week’s Boulder Half.” What an ass!
