we all make choices in our lives… if you can’t find the motivation to run, then find the motivation to not hurt yourself and decide to either not do this race or to walk the whole thing…even that will hurt a lot…

I did one marathon this way… I had a good base going, slipped on the ice and had some pulled muscles, took a month off, ran a month… ran the first 10 easy, jogged and walked the last 16.2… it can be done… I think Zeke’s idea of one minute every mile STARTING WITH THE FIRST MILE is really good beacuse you can be sure to see the mile markers instead of remembering to check your watch…

but if you’re not motivated to train at this point, why bother… and instead of worrying about time maybe you could think about hanging with the slowest pace group and cheering other people on…
