I have elected not to enter the Philly Marathon on November 17th. The change has impacted my training a bit, and thus I am not ready to do what I feel like I am capable of doing. I did place 33rd out of 1900 runners in the Maine Half-Marthon two weeks ago, but still, I need more time. I will stick to some base running until mid December. Then, I will gear up for a spring half-marathon race and the Boston Marathon in April. Today was a nice run, I must say. Nothing too hard. 9 miles at a 7:10 per mile pace. 5 of those miles were around a 6:45 – 6:50 pace.
