Very few live races at the moment, so I figured I’d do the virtual Eugene (Oregon) 5K and half marathon. I’ve run the marathon down there in the past, and it’s a really nice race. And it give me something to do. As I’m doing the Double Stack Challenge (brought to you by Krusteaz pancake mix, get it?), tomorrow is the half marathon.
I was pretty sure my sub-3:00 marathon days were over, and this just confirms it: can’t run sub-3:00 if I can’t even run that pace for 5 kilometers. On the other hand, I went from death’s doorstep back to running half marathon distance in the space of about a year, so I’m not complaining. Tune in tomorrow for the exciting half marathon finish!
