My plan for the Fall was pretty straightforward.
My plan was to train for the Medtronic Twin Cities 16k but to toss in a few 20k runs so that I would have the training distance I needed to run the Niagara Falls Half Marathon two weeks later.
My plan was to focus on the TC 16k because that was my big Fall race. The half marathon was just icing on the cake.
My plan was to run the 16k and then take stock of how my body was feeling. If it felt ok, I'd sign up for Niagara Falls. If not, I'd call it a day. Because I've pushed my body all spring and summer and I didn't want to push it too far.
Yesterday I decided to check the Niagara Falls website just to make sure that it wasn't close to being sold out yet.
And I saw that the cost of the race was going to go up by $10 on October 1st.
So I panicked.
I grabbed my wallet.
I filled out the registration form.
I signed up.
So much for my plan.
