OK. It is officially driving me crazy. The weather is perfect, but the schedule is not. That's always the way things go is this time of year.
I always take a brief hiatus from running after the spring marathon. It enables me to squeeze in most, if not all, of my end-of-academic-year responsibilities. It enables me to fully recover. It enables me to remember why I love--no, crave--running so much.
This year, I will miss the RC-Moon Pie race in Bell Buckle for the first time in four years. But, after that I should be back into the swing of things, ready for the Firecracker 5K on July 4. Then, it will be a push for whatever fall marathon I choose--and then on to the St. Jude Marathon in December.
So, as soon as I get back from my quick overseas trip this next week, I'll start training again. I'm raring to go!
