One of these days I'm going to get around to reading the Runner's World article on Frank Shorter. I've already checked out the pictures - more than once, actually - but I've been warned that the article is pretty heavy and that I should be prepared for it.
In the meantime, I'm doing the Yonkers Half Marathon on Sunday. Right? Right? I am, aren't I? I mean, I'm registered for it... Well, technically I'm registered for the full, but I shouldn't have any problems downgrading to the half, especially since I would be much slower than the 5hr cut-off and it's a two-loop course (just try to force me to run a second loop).
But here's my question: should I even do the race? I'm feeling overwhelmed with work this week and I'm not excited about this race. At all. I have this feeling like something has got to give to preserve my sanity, and this race might be the easiest obligation to walk away from.
Still, I need to run, and I may as well get a t-shirt for it, right? Or not right?
