It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

Insufficient short-term gratification, or lack of long-term commitment I guess, really, I just run for fun, so I am not yet ready for goals involving years of preparation. Maybe later.
Hm, yes. I just thought of the idea of weighing myself before and after my next long run. Seems like that might give me some estimate on how dehydrated I'm getting. I've read that ideally one would drink so much as to not lose weight. I'm pretty sure I'm losing several pounds on some of my runs (from dehydration presumably, I mean).
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
And marathons and fun runs are not exclusive. You can run both. One race can even be both.
