Rather than going round and round the concrete roadways of Sugarland, I wonder if I should tackle the Sun Mart 50K? I see two issues with this.
First, the Sun Mart at $80 is in pretty expensive, like in Marathon territory. But then, it is longer than a marathon.
Secondly, and much more important, can I finish it without having a near death experience? Do I have the endurance to do this with only about 6 weeks to go?
I know what my FIT coach would say, "Run the 30K, don't risk an overuse injury that will ruin your marathon training."
My wife Fran would also disapprove, I'll have to tell her that I'm on my way to the 30K when in reality, I'd be going North to Huntsville..... (I hope she doesn't read this anymore.....)
Your $0.02 is greatly appreciated.
