Between lotteries and extremely early sellouts, there is much activity in the running world surrounding 2012 races. We're not even halfway through 2011!
It's easy to feel a little left out and lost as people announced they got into the Houston Marathon today after lottery picks were sent out this morning. But I think I'm being smart to not commit to anything yet for 2012.
I'm running my first marathon in just 5 weeks and have a few more goals through the end of 2011. But I want to see how I feel about my running the next several months before I start putting together a plan for the next year. Because right now, I have no clue what my goals will be for 2012, short distance or long distance, focus on speed or miles on legs, etc.
Until then though, I feel a little left behind as people start making future plans. Gotta stay focused on the now!
