The Rest of the Story

Well…there’s something I need to confess to you.
I didn’t celebrate National Running Day. I didn’t even really acknowledge it.
I also haven’t really been running quite so much lately…or at least my overall mileage has decreased (by a lot).
And even though everything I told you in my post about not running Vermont City was true, I did leave out one little, but important detail.
The detail that explains why I started experiencing back pain on my runs. Why I lost motivation to train. And why (even though I was technically cleared) I decided it was best to sit out of VCM a couple of weekends ago.
Because at the moment — I’m focusing on a different type of training plan. One that’s longer than anything I’ve ever done. And instead of making me fitter and faster, it’ll ultimately make me gain weight and slow down.
A type of training that’s already proven harder than any marathon training plan I’ve ever taken on.
But it does come with a super sweet reward at the end…
Cheese Baby – coming December 2013*!
We’re kinda really excited…
*Yeah, I know it’s kind of early to announce this sort of thing, but I got tired of trying to hide it (aka just not blog ever). Also, it’s really tough to keep something this exciting a secret for so long!
More to come!
