San Diego Marathon This Sunday

On Thursday Carrie and I are going to head out to San Diego, with a too-brief stop in L.A. to visit my parents. (Hi Mom!)  The headline of the trip is the San Diego Marathon next Sunday. I’m going to do the full while Carrie does the half and I’ve decided I’m going to do something I’ve never done in a race before…

…I’m not going to wear a watch.  Yep, I’m going to run entirely on feeling.

It’s interesting how your approach to races changes when you’re A) Sure you can finish and B) Not really concerned with your time.  Other than being aware of not going out too hard at the start I really don’t care what my pace is.  If I feel good and I’m having fun I’ll run hard.  If I want to slow down, I will. If I feel like walking a bit, I will.  Maybe I’ll stop and take a photo or three along the way. The finish time will be whatever it is.  Could be 5. Could be 7.

Either way, it’ll be fun!
