On Being a Marathoner

It’s pretty easy to say, “never again” in the midst of a marathon, and even in the days following. But every time I run one, by the time three or four days go by, I’m thinking about doing it again.

So it’s no surprise that here I am a week after the BMO Vancouver Marathon and I’m starting to think about when I’ll take on the challenge of 42.2km again.

At this point I’m thinking maybe next spring again, but a small part of me is thinking about running a fall full here in Toronto. I’ve never run the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, so that has a bit of a draw for me. The are rumours of a new course as well, adding fuel to the fire.

We’ll see. For the time being, I’m going to focus on keeping on running three or four times a week, and maybe run a half or two over the summer to see where I’m at over the shorter distances.
