well...

I waited too long to sign up for the Houston Marathon or the half. Went to the website today and saw the notice that the races were sold out. Oh well.
Then I started wishing I had something to train for. So I went and did something crazy. I registered for the Sunmart 50K in December. I also registered for the Turkey Trot in Dallas since we will be there for the Cowboys game on Thanksgiving.
I'm excited to have something to train for, though a 50K in just over two months is quite a bit to train for. Anyway, I'm anxious to get back to some more serious running. Gives me something to shoot for.
It will be my first time for a trail run, so there's no pressure of finishing in a certain time frame. At least that's what I'm saying today.
My running has still be okay, getting in hour-long runs each of the past three days.
Wanted to go a little longer today, but cut it short to go to church.

Even though I haven't registered yet my plan is to run Sunmart. I hope to see you there.

Aw, I won't be able to see you in Houston. Arron's running the half again, I'll be there to cheer him on.

Hey- maybe I'll see you at Sunmart! I might volunteer for it!

I heard Sunmart was a lot of fun. Sounds like a great plan!

Next time I do Sunmart, I'm getting a pair of trail shoes. Good luck. It's a lot of fun!

Edwin, let me know if you still want to run Houston. I have a 1/2 marathon bib that I won't be using and it can be converted to a full!
