stu-pid-i-ty:noun = acting like Dave
Last week was a tough week for decisions. I had received confirmation for 2011 London marathon a few weeks ago. I've done it before and loved it but it does not really fit into my race/training plan as it is sandwiched in between Dee33 and Highland Fling.
So I thought long and hard about deferring it to 2012. I could pay now and run it in a year and a half. But did I really want to do that? Commit to a race that far in advance when I dont even know if I will want to run it? I am running more and more off road these days and the massive events like London are becoming less appealing.
I had until Friday 5pm to pay. By Friday lunchtime I still hadn't decided.
Then at 3pm I made the call. I was going to pay and defer until 2012.
