I turn 40 in August and debating on what to race in the fall. Originally I was thinking of a fall Marathon but now I’m thinking of scratching that and running shorter road races and XC in the fall. With four young kids at home finding time for Marathon training is hard.
I never considered myself a marathoner (1500m runner D3 in college) ran my first one two years ago 3:01 and my second last fall 2:50. My fastest 5k last year was 17:10 (middle of marathon build up).
I’m looking for some motivation and suggestions.
