Should I?

The DeLeon Springs Half Marathonis this Sunday. I'm thinking about running it. I really need to decide quickly.

Finishing it is not an issue. The fact that the Disney Half Marathon is a mere six days away is my only concern.

I have run half marathon races with eight days between them. The second race of those two was my half marathon PR. Now, I'm not expecting to PR at Disney, although it's possible I don't see that happening for me. It takes several miles for the crowd to thin out and get into the groove.

The course in DeLeon Springs is reportedly pancake flat, which would be nice.

So, should I?

I'm with Chris - if you're feeling strong and keen - use this one to blast all the blues away and then just enjoy Disney next week. It shouldn't do you any harm as long as you can take one of them easy..

Go for it! Just be mindful of injuries and if you feel you need to slow up, then do.

If you have been consistent in your training, then this could be a long run in preparation for the Disney. But, it doesn't matter what I think. Just following your blog, I know that you are committed to running.

Go! Run it! Enjoy it!

I have to be different and say NO. Sorry! It's just that I ran FABULOUS races the two weeks prior to St. Jude and then bonked. That's all!
