So, committed I have become!
The old credit card came flying out of my wallet far too easily and now here I am, registered for the 2012 BMO Vancouver Half Marathon on May 6! I'm relieved it's all done and confirmed because I have been hearing that the event is selling quickly. Phew!
BMO was the first half marathon I ever ran back in 2008 and my first HM clinic instructor has always bugged me to go do "my race" again. So I am. And I'm pretty excited about it. Let's see if I can match the excitement of doing it the first time...
I guess I've got some work to do now...
- Update the countdown ticker on my blog (most importantly, of course!)
- Come up with some kind of training plan
- Start tagging along for the long runs of the current BMO clinic at our local store
- Get out and find that more flattering rain jacket! If you look good, you feel good and if you feel good, you run good, right? Obviously, a new jacket is therefore an essential component of this being a successful round of training!
But first, like any good runner, I am going to finish milking the last few days of my post-race rest week. I've thoroughly enjoyed barely thinking about my running and not feeling guilty about it. I think in some way I burned out a little before the Van First Half and truly resting during this week is a big part of shaking that off and getting psyched to continue and start working towards BMO Van 2012!
