I am running a marathon on Sunday, it is going to rain on Sunday.
I ran this same marathon in 2009 and it rained, not just a drizzle but a full on storm. It rained every step of the way, and in case you are not up on race distances, a marathon is 26.2 miles. That is a lot of steps. A lot of very wet steps.
I seem to get sick at the end of February or early March. I was sick just prior to running this race three years ago, and I am sick now.
I am desperately hoping that I get healthy in the next few days, I am drinking lots of fluids and taking a slew of natural remedies. I want to run, and I want to feel good while I am running.
This is the second time I am running the Napa marathon, but the odds are the same. Sick in the rain.
After Sunday, I will not run this marathon again. (Please remind me of this when I decided sign up again).
If not Napa, then what marathons should I do? New York, Big Sur, and Portland are on my list of races I will do someday.
Are you a runner? If so what have you run, what would you recommend and what do you look for in a race?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
