Although I may sound like an eager runner, my reasons for doing this are:
1. Continue Training - I just rested for a week after marathon #1 and continued training the week after. That said, I just have to continue where I left of.
2. Sprint Tri - I plan to start training this spring for my first sprint triathlon in the summer. Hence, I just want to finish marathon #2 so I can concentrate on that, then marathon #3 at the end of 2011.
Please also note that, although I am aiming for a PR, I am not hoping for a big one. A few minutes faster than marathon #1's finish time (5:19) will suffice. Heck, I'll be happy with 5:15, really.
I created a poll for this just to see how many would agree or disagree. Feel free to post further opinions in my comments section. So far I have heard from Thad (Runner Dude) and Jason B.
I understand that many will have different opinions on this and I am all ears. At the end of the day, I still get to decide, right? I'd really like to hear your take on this. And would appreciate it greatly. Thank you! =)
