Money. I want to go to Phoenix for the P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll (half) Marathon in January. But let me tell you, I also WANT new hardwood floors in my house, which I plan to do in January. I WANT a new car. I WANT to go to Europe in 2010. I WANT, I WANT, I WANT. Where do you draw the line in the sand, and just say - well, I may WANT to go to Phoenix in January, but that is money I do not NEED to spend. Hell, what do I know?
I am training for something. I ran 5 good miles this morning. I felt good. I plan on running 6 miles next Sunday, and keep training until I am ready to run a half-marathon again. I just don't know what I am doing. Why can't there be a race in Colorado in January - that is a rhetorical question - I know why... start with ice, snow, sub-zero temperatures, and add from there.
