Understudy Runner

All HOPE is not lost… yesterday I found A New Hope…”Help Me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope.”

I found this through the Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon Forum, we I had finally come to accept that I wouldn’t be running in the Flying Monkey Marathon. Shortly after my post, I had a reply from the Race Director.

Monkey Trent: You want to be put on the waiting list?


So there may be a Flying Monkey’s chance that I WILL be able to run on November 22nd. The Question is… WHEN will I know if I get called to service? Ooooo, I love a good mystery. I better start getting that training program together and ACTUALLY start running again.

Here is a link to the Forum Topic

    So – the question is – to run with the ROCKETS or not?

    The best that you can hope for is to be passed over on the waiting list…that may actually reduce your suffering in November…

    I had thought about doing the Flying Monkey myself. I finally sat down this last weekend and noodled out a marathon plan for the fall/winter. I was even at the point of sending you an email to see if you were running this one. But, as it all turned out, I found one on Saturday after Thanksgiving that is less than 2 hours from where I will be thanksgiving-ing that I am going to run. Timing and location are perfect. It is a much smaller race. Only about 100 did the full marathon last year. It is the Mississippi Coast Marathon http://www.marathonguide.com/races/racedetails.cfm?MIDD=1505091128

    I am pretty excited about having a training plan. I am doing the same plan I did last year, but this time I have a goal time to beat. I also have plenty of days scheduled in for cross training. I am not quite at the same physical conditioning I was in last year. I really need to work on my basic physical fitness. Those cross training days are going to be scheduled with specific workouts just like my running days.

    I am going to get my mo-jo back!
