As some may be aware I have decided to pull out of this year’s Snowdonia marathon. I have club races every weekend up to the event and I simply wouldn’t have the time to get the long runs in that are needed so I was left with two choices…..
A. Turn up, have a bad run and not enjoy the experience.
B. Be sensible and save the race for a time when I’m ready and will enjoy what is one of the most picturesque races in the UK.
Some may think I’m being a little soft and I should just of ran it but I’m a firm believer of practicing what I preach,and I would never advise anyone to enter a marathon unready, either mentally or physically.
So don’t be afraid to postpone/cancel races if you are not prepared, you only have to answer to yourself and the clock!
