This year I promised my wife and running buddy that I would not run a race longer than 13.1 miles. After attempting to fit into my nice clothes at Easter I realized, I lied. I need to train for ultra marathons to fit into the clothes I own. I need to train for ultra marathons so I can eat the food I like.
Today I saw the wheelchair division finish the Boston Marathon. I wanted to leave my desk and go run 26.2 this evening. Then I saw the women's finish. And then I wanted to sign up for a marathon, but I promised my wife and running buddy I wouldn't. Next, Meb K. Won the Boston Marathon. I realized I lied. I really want to run long distances again. I never said that I wouldn't run 13.1 and then 13.1 again, right away.
