Today is a rant that is not super organized, bear with me.
So I just found out the only race I am currently registered for is being moved from April til October!!!!
CRAZY! I was getting really excited about this Tough Mudder in the Poconos in April, had a ton of friends running it with me, was lifting, and working on arm strength to be prepared for obstacles, and had dedicated to creating a new customized training plan for it, and then today I got an email saying it was moving to Philadelphia in October.
Which in itself isn’t too unfortunate since it will probably be a bit better weather and gives me plenty of time to train, however I was looking so forward to it and everything that went with this race! This was going to be my first race that wasn’t in the city I lived in or right near where I was Spring Breaking. It involved a whole process of travelling and spending the weekend in a cabin in the woods with friends, aka, pure joy!
Now I don’t have that! It’s times like these I wish I had access to a car here in Philadelphia and I could just sign up for a race, find friends to run it with me, and do exactly this.
Travel and racing excites me! I truly want to do more of it just at this point in my life find it extremely difficult to make a reality from a purely logistical standpoint.
So my first question of the day, what has been your experience travelling for races?
My second question for the day is what race should I run next?!
Now that my only race has been taken from me for a while I desperately need to find another one to replace it! Too bad the Northeast is so chilly in winter and basically from December til mid-March not many races in nearby cities happen.
I guess it’s time for some research and some train travel!
