So the other day I decided to forego the Olympic distance tri in favor of a few more sprint tri's and a marathon. Today it just dawned on me that the marathon in question falls at the end of October. Which means that the long training runs would fall late September, early October. And that is prime hiking weather! I can't run a marathon in the middle of hiking season! I mean, I love tri's and I love running, but this is FRICKIN' HIKING, for God's sake!
Hiking is the holy grail of my existance.
And the marathon is officially shelved.
