I did not do any races in 2007, but I’m writing a race report because this is the year that laid the groundwork for my current and future race goals.
There were a few reasons I was not interested in racing this year…
I was worn out from the training of 2005 and 2006 (half marathon, 10 mile race, marathon…all back to back)
I missed sleeping in on the weekends.
I started taking improv classes and poured a fair amount of energy into this new craft.
I was recovering from my intense relationship with the Bartender and all of the self inflicted drama from the subsequent make-ups and break-ups.
In October, while recovering physically from those pulmonary embolisms and emotionally from the very last break-up with the Bartender, I decided to return to training of some sort. In December, I started my training for St. Anthony’s tri with Team in Training.
