|2013 Miami half marathon|
This is the weekend for the Miami marathon and half marathon....
For the past two years, I have run the half marathon in Miami.....
However, this year I am not running in this race, and I am feeling "some kind of way about it."
Normally, I will spend November and December training for this race. However, this winter, I joined a cycling team, and I have not had time to train for this race. Cycling is taking up every weekend and quite a few of my weeknights.
Because I love cycling and want to do well on this team, I have no complaints about the amount of time that I spend with the team and cycling. However, man, I am feeling "some kind of way" about not being in South Beach, lying on the beach, mentally preparing for this race.
Well, I think a lot about "having it all," I know that we can have it all but not necessarily at the same time. It is almost impossible for me to train for both running and cycling if I want to take care of other areas of my life like working, dating, reading for pleasure, meeting up with friends, and working out with Berhane, the greatest trainer in the world. Yes, I could do both but at a very high cost to my life and body, and it's just not worth it to me.
So, right now physically, I am focusing on cycling and strength training, and it's all right with me......

Enjoy your weekend folks!
