3:30 or bust<busted.

March 4, 2017

How often do you put all your proverbial eggs into one proverbial basket? I’d bet it’s more often than you think.  Earlier this year I made the commitment. I wanted to hit a 3:30 marathon in Eugene.  This would be a huge PR for me in this distance.  

 

I’ve just never had a great marathon.  The stars just never lined up that way.  It’s no big deal, but then suddenly it was.  I was so concerned with times instead of enjoyment.  I told everyone about my big goal.  I was afraid - but that’s when you know you’re on the right path, right?

 

It was a lofty goal, and possibly achievable, but at this point… my eggs are scattered.  I was eager and hungry to snuggle back into the race community I am so familiar with.  So, naturally I signed up for another race.  The weekend before the Eugene Marathon. 

 

Shit.  Double race weekends?  No big deal… I’ve done bigger weekends, three ultra-in a-row weekends.  Piece of cake.

 

As the months tick by…I’m realizing maybe this isn’t going to happen the way I dreamed.  

 

The race I’d signed up for is a hilly 50k in northern Oregon called the Tillamook Burn 50k.  So…. a 3:30 after a hilly ultra?  Possible, but unlikely for this girl. I’m more than OK with it.
