Sod patience, I want to race!

Everyone else is having fun except me!

That's how it feels anyway.  So, I've signed up for a couple of races and got plans for a few more.  The first is a rolling trail half marathon in just under two weeks.  So what if the longest run I've done in 5 1/2 months is 8 miles!?  I really really miss being in a race.

I've also signed up for my most hated race distance; a marathon.  In October, which is ages away and it's on the run up to a 3 day ultra (if I'm allowed have the Friday off work - it's only 84 miles over 3 days, which averages less distance per day than I did on the Thames Path last October).  And a couple of others; another rolling trail half marathon more locally, and a 10 mile trail run and a half marathon in the Lake District in September.

I'll probably come last in the Hitchin Hard Half, but I don't care; I want to race!

  1. Don't worry, I came last in a race last week - it's not as bad as you might think :)
