They were all plans made riding the high of having reached the goals of running back to back Berlin/Amsterdam Marathons 2012.
Only a handful of people knew, that while I was training for Berlin Marathon, I had already set my eyes on running Amsterdam three weeks later.
Until I knew that I "could" run it, I was not ready to share it to everyone.
It was a personal goal, I was able to dream because of the huge support of my family and friends, most of whom I was in contact with online.
But it was also a "gift" to my psyche.
Now, fast forward to 22 months of running.
My #TRIOfor2013 (run 3 marathons within a year) has been beset with hurdles after hurdles.
The background story you can read: here.
The trio this year will not be Paris/Luxembourg/Berlin, as I wished and hoped it will be.
Plan B would be: BAM! Berlin/ Amsterdam /- yet to be chosen Marathon preferably in August, if not it will be November/December.
It'll be named Mystery Marathon because stubbornly searching and scheduling a marathon that starts with the letter M, which will be held at the ideal time i.e. an event fitting the time table of the multiple marathons training schedule, will be hazardous to my health and psyche! >.<
It could be considered by some a crazy idea. But it will be a "controlled, planned-out craziness" :D
Also it is my project so I can do what I want. Punt. :P
