Hood to Coast Video
|September 21, 2011||Posted by Lauren under Running|
Thank you for all your great feedback on my weekend dilemma…though I should have known that all you running crazies would vote to race! After reading through your comments, I have to admit that I was feeling more torn than ever. Obviously I would much rather run the Wicked Half, and the thought of missing out is really tough.
However, I think I’ve decided to just suck it up and tackle the 20 miles on my own. Conversations with my dad, EC, and a very wise runner (in addition to some of your comments!) helped me see that the mental toughness I’d get from doing a 20-mile run on my own will be pretty valuable on race day. And that mental toughness is what I really need to work on right now.
On top of all that, I’m afraid that I might be getting sick. Did you know that spending all weekend in a crowded van in freezing New Hampshire isn’t exactly the best for your health? I’m not feeling sick enough to cancel a long run, but I don’t want to push it with yet another race.
So there you have it. There will be other races on other weekends. But for now, I will get through these 20 miles.
Anyway, now that I’ve brought you all up to speed, I have to tell you that that’s not actually what I wanted to post about today. I know you all must be shocked to see a post two days in a row from me, but I got something last night that I just had to share.
Remember how we had a cameraman join us on Hood to Coast and
sleep in the back of the van film us running? Well the video is finished and it is amazing!! Becker – you may require a lot of sleep, but you do very good work!! I loved every second of this, and of course it makes me miss HTC and my fellow Nuunies even more.
Yes, I know…you probably thought I was done talking about HTC for good. But I promise this is worth it.
Who’s excited for next year?!
