As usual it took a little bit of "Me" time to really get the nagging thoughts in the back of my mind to the forefront and deal with it. Monday's run on the Downs was perfect allowing to go through some stuff in my head and view my priorities in my running calendar. The two big ones looming are:
- Thames Path 100
Whilst #2 holds great memories and a wonderful challenge it was however originally entered in case my G.U.C.R entrance was not accepted via the ballot, as my Dear Readers know, I was successful and everything else became secondary. Such is the case I was planning to run just part of the TP100 and drop at about 40 miles. The runner in me bulked at this idea....
I have withdrawn from the TP100 with these words to the organisers:
"It is with a heavy heart that I am relinquishing my coveted TP100 race number for 2014. As some of you know I will be running the GUCR at the end of May and has been my goal race for over a year. I was planning to run part of the course as a training run and drop out but my heart was not in it if I did so. Sorry for the late drop."
All is not bad.....wait for tomorrow's instalment to see what is going on!!!
