I have officially, mentally committed to running the Wine Vine Run half-marathon on Nov 13th. This will be my fourth race of the year. :) I am hoping to PR this race, and given that my first and only other half-mary was at elevation and I feel like I am in much better running shape now than I was then, I'm thinking this is a good possibility. Dare I say I'm hoping to break that 2:00 barrier? I don't know, but its a secondary goal to PR-ing it.
After the Wine Vine Run I will be switching gears and begin to focus more on my cycling and let running take a back seat. I say this with kind of a heavy heart because I so do love running, and love running in the cold and rain, and sometimes snow even more, but I need to work on being a stronger cyclist. I can still run 1-3 days a week and enjoy all the things I love about running in the winter. Here is the real problem with switching gears to cycling mid-November.. I am the biggest fair-weather cyclist there ever was. I love to complain about it being too cold/windy/wet/cloudy/etc on rides. So I'm also hoping to overcome this whiny part of myself. Learn to
Here is where I'd really love an idea of two... I would really love to find a hoodie that says the following:
On the front - Winter Cycle Training
On the back - Whine less, pedal more.
Anyone have any ideas on where I could find something like this, or have something like this made at a reasonable cost? Any ideas would be great.
So there are the next 3+ months in a general idea. Just hold me to it, m'kay? :)
