With a marathon less than 1 week behind me, I'm already looking forward to my next race: Middendorf's Manchac 10 Mile Race. It's hosted by the New Orleans Track Club and Middendorf's, a Louisiana seafood restaurant. Food after the race features Middendorf's famous fried catfish. Real healthy. This is what it's like trying to run & stay healthy in New Orleans. Most races here often feature beer at the finish line and the Mardi Gras Marathon even has a water station that offers beer around mile 6. Seriously.
Other than the constant battle to eat healthy while experiencing New Orleans, there's the battle over what to do this weekend. I want to race. And I don't mean show up to the race, I meann, I want to run like I'm racing. See what I can do. But everyone says you should ease yourself back into speed when you've run a marathon. And I realize that this race is much less important than my upcoming marathon in December. I certainly don't want to sabotage myself. But it's so hard! Ahhh!
Ever find yourself with 2 competing desires for a race? What did you do?
