Sometimes other things are more important than races
Sometimes, when it's been all about you for the past 2 1/2 years, it's time to give someone else a turn.
Sometimes, when your super speedy fiance is about to run his first half marathon, you realise you'd rather be wrapping him in a giant great hug at the end then struggling around the Bays into a head wind for another twenty minutes.
Sometimes, after you've changed your entry to the 10k (which should have you back in plenty of time), you happen upon the perfect replacement race.
So- I'm foregoing the Harbour Capital Half for another bite at the 10k (remember last year?). And then, in October, I'm heading to New Plymouth to hang with my sister and run a half marathon.
I'm not shooting for sub-48 this time round, but am hoping for a sub-50. For those of you who've entered the guess my time competition, thanks for your optimism. Either I can put all guesses into a predictor and set an equivalent goal based on those, or you can guess again.
