As I was driving away from the majestic Rockies (I know that’s over used, but it is true) I felt an impending sense of dread know I needed to run 20 miles upon my return to Calgary.
I’m not quite sure how to sum up #Waterton and this weekend. It was a much needed escape for me. I left early (and missed our last hike) I order to tackle my 20 (edited: 20 mile training run, I’d never run a 29 mile training run) mile training run. Instead, the closer I got to home, the more anxious I felt and I more I wanted to cry. It took a conversation with myself and a few friends, but I decided to take a step back from marathon training. For whatever reason, my body and brain weren’t on the same page and what’s best for me is to run the @goodlifefitness Victoria Half Marathon and decide what to do from there. There’s a 100% chance I’ll be running Dopey, but the rest we’ll play by ear. #cowgirlruns #MyWaterton #ABBloggersRetreat #AlbertaAdventureGirls #marathontraining #runchat

Have you ever delayed making a decision for fear of disappointing those around you?
I absolutely needed to see this today. While I’m 100% certain dropping down to the half for Victoria in two weeks is the right decision, it’s never easy make a decision to drop back in a race. Sometimes I’m scared that I’m not badass or dedicated enough, and then I realize I need to stay true to me. Maybe marathons and I just need a break for a bit while I work to master the half. No matter the distance you run – you are a runner. #cowgirlruns #realtalk #runchat #runyyc #marathontraining #victoriamarathon #halfmarathontraining A photo posted by Ange (@cowgirlruns) on Sep 27, 2015 at 5:25pm PDT
