Yesterday I hit up the dreadmill for an easy, and I do mean EASY, three mile run. It was slow and it was boring but at least I was dry. It was windy and pouring rain here. It is one thing to run in a soft, light rain but yesterday was no such rain.
I am still on the fence about the Oklahoma City Marathon. I am terrible at making decisions. I am a last minute kind of girl. Maybe it I am afraid of commitment. :) Here are the factors that I must consider:
1. Childcare for long runs. My Little Buddy goes to preschool all week and I hate having to find him care on the weekends. That is my time with him. So I would have to do the long runs during the week.
2. Travel and air fare. Since we had to cancel our travel plans over Christmas to go home (which is Oklahoma)I really want to go home soon, like the end of this month. But then I would be going again end of April for the marathon. All this plus only 1/3 of the cost refunded for the Dec flight tickets adds up to A LOT of money.
3. I want my first marathon to be the OKC Marathon. Period. So I would have to wait over a year to do my first marathon.
4. I need to fill up my calendar while The Hubs is away and trips and races are the best way to do that.
So I will decide this weekend.
Today I am grateful for:
My warm house.
My cozy bed.
