Since I decided to run a half, I had two options: Philly or Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh was still 8 months away, while Philly was just 4 months
away. So, I chose Philly.
|Such a flattering picture.|
Then, I was hooked. And I decided to do Pittsburgh.
|A bit more flattering.|
So, that left me with just Denmark on my list of homes where I wanted to run. The Copenhagen Marathon is in May, so I know I won't be ready for a full marathon in May, so I scratched Denmark off the list for a while.
This morning, I found out that the Copenhagen Half Marathon is run in September. I happen to be going to Denmark to visit my family in September. The Half Marathon happens to be exactly a week after I get to Copenhagen.
So I registered. I know I'll be slow, and I know I'll probably finish last (past race results show that Danes run fast, and I'm the slowest Dane ever) since the last person last year finished in 3:25 which is faster than my half times. But I don't care! I'm sucking up the "I don't want to be last" feeling, and I'm going to enjoy my run around a city I love and a country I call home!
