That's right folks, I'm signed up for the full marathon at the Rock N Roll Las Vegas in November!!
Let me give you the setup to this whole craziness. A few weeks back I told Mrs Schlub that I knew what I wanted for Fathers Day in June and my birthday in September. I didn't want anything, I wanted to save money and go out to Vegas for the RnR. At the time a lot of planning was still needed but was a possibility.
Fast forward to National Running Day. Mrs Schlub happened to come across cheap flights going from PHX to Vegas. We immediately jumped on them and booked them. Flights....check.
RnR said they were running a special but man it sure didn't seem like it. Mrs Schlub wants to run the 10k so that was easy enough, signed her up for that.
The real dilemma came to my run. I originally wanted to run the half. When I looked at prices, the full and half were the same exact price. What the?!?!?! So in a moment of insanity, I figured might as well get my money's worth and knock out the marathon. Races.....check.
Not going to lie, after submitting, I frantically hit the back button to change back to the half lol.....
What's done is done, and now I'm on to finding a full marathon training plan. I really feel I got there on my own last November before injury and Mrs Schlub surgery so I'm not worried BUT it always helps to have a guide to build off of.
Let me know, what marathon plan have you used and do you suggest I take a look at???
Btw can you say crazy NRD 2015 in the Schlub house lol...
