MiniMarathon #2

This year I completed my second Kentucky Derby Festival MiniMarathon. I finished 30 minutes faster than last year in 2:49:49. I like to joke I went from really slow to just slow. I'm actually pretty happy with that time, but I think that might be my last half-marathon.  In this past year, I feel I've become a runner, but I don't enjoy long training runs. 5 miles felt good, 8 miles felt ok, and 10 miles was no fun. I'm signed up for the Rock and Roll Miami Half-Marathon in December, but I'm not sure I want to participate. I signed up on a whim because it was on sale and a little bit to show the ex I didn't need him to keep running. That realization combined with my dislike of long training runs and the fact that it's the weekend before finals makes me want to skip it. So we'll see. I've done 3 half-marathons now and that might be where I stop. I'm glad I don't have to decide today.
