Conflicted, thoughts of a runner

Since the start of my running adventures I've set my goals on marathons, achieving certain times, paces, qualifying for Boston. The last few years have been rough ending with a mentally tough TCM that has really taken a toll on me. I keep thinking back to how relaxed I felt running the 50K in April and wonder if trails and ultra running is more my style (at least for awhile). Aside from the relaxed nature of trails I'm getting my butt kicked at the CrossFit gym again and loving the not so relaxed feel tough side of that!

Luckily with out a goal race in the near future I'm back out on the trails with a few easy runs the past couple weeks. The weather is perfect and colors are gorgeous.

On my last run we came face to face with this guy! Luckily he stopped and walked off into the woods watching us from a little further as we passed.

So much is running through my mind right now...
  • Do I sign up for Chicago 2017 (I still have a guaranteed entry time)
  • I'm already signed up for Flying Pig marathon
  • I want to run a 50 mile, but can I do this and a marathon?
  • Do I really have it in me to hit my sub 3:20 marathon goal
  • Trail running is peaceful
  • Maybe I should focus a lot on strength and minimal running
  • Winter is coming and I hate cold running (thanks to Raynauds)
  • I'll just move somewhere warm
  • I'm liking sleep right now
  • What is up with the weird leg stuff?!
What thoughts are going through your head right now on running?
