After almost 10 years of training for and running marathons and more, I have decided to take a break. This decision is based on several factors, but the most dominant is the performance decrease over the last couple years. This has further led to a decrease in motivation, which has led to an even further decrease in performance due to the lack of quality training. In an effort to break this cycle, I am stepping back for a while and catching up with other things in my life.
I am still running, but have started to do more cross-training and other sports. I am also working on a plan for the second half of the year that will hopefully prepare me for a new year of racing in 2016. I will attempt to document this progress once I sort it all out.
